Culminating the Work of the NENA
9-1-1 Center Operations Committee
No matter what role you play in the operation of
9-1-1, the primary objective is always the same: to make the 9-1-1
connection—the link through which information and communications flow.
With the increasing pace of change increasing and limited resources,
9-1-1 professionals spend the majority of time working on the day-to-day
tasks associated with 9-1-1. It is always difficult to find the time to
step back and learn or to work on improving your 9-1-1 center
That’s why NENA has created the 9-1-1 Center
Operations Best Practice
first-ever "Best Practices" in 9-1-1 Center Operations
conference. Designed for the busy 9-1-1 center manager, supervisor or
decision-maker, this operations conference offers a unique opportunity not only to
learn from your industry peers, but also to help shape national policy
and standards for 9-1-1 operations.
The 9-1-1 Center Operations BPC is a combination of presentations
and collaborative workshops to help NENA identify the best practices in
the operation of 9-1-1 centers. You can help shape the future of 9-1-1
by sharing with others your experiences and best practices. Modeled
after NENA’s highly successful Technical Development Conference (TDC),
participants help drill
out key 9-1-1 operations issues, with an eye towards the development of
NENA "Best Practices" and/or operations standards for 9-1-1.
NENA recognizes that best practices and standards cannot be fully
developed from start to finish in a three-day conference, but what can
be accomplished is to identify current best practices, characterize and
prioritize areas in need of further development, and then begin to draft
NENA 9-1-1 Operations Standards and recommendations.
If you have any
questions on these or any other matters regarding the 9-1-1 Center
Operations Best Practice Conference, please contact Allison
Kingsley at NENA.
