Report Card to the Nation (RCN)
Grading the performance of 9-1-1 is a critical first step in understanding how well 9-1-1 is serving the American public. Analyzing factors that make 9-1-1 successful both today and tomorrow is the focus of this first-ever report on 9-1-1.
An RCN Commission was formed by NENA to review and grade the performance of 9-1-1. The Commission set the scope and developed the criteria for grading. With the criteria established, NENA designed and conducted a research effort to gather primary and secondary data on 9-1-1 service and the 9-1-1 industry. The first result was the Report Card to the Nation Congressional Summery that NENA released on September 11, 2001 in Washington DC.
This important effort will continue with a soon-to-be released 9-1-1 System Survey and Resource Guide–a tool for professionals in 9-1-1.
