2017 National Emergency Number Association (NENA) Conference

GeoComm is excited to be participating in the 2017 National Emergency Number Association (NENA) Conference and Expo being held June 3-8 in San Antonio, Texas.  Stop by our booth number 427 and to learn why achieving public safety grade GIS data for NG9-1-1 no longer needs to be a challenging task. We understand each jurisdiction has unique GIS data, 9-1-1, and Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) mapping requirements and our approach to achieving NG9-1-1 GIS data readiness is tailored to our customer’s unique needs.

In our booth, we will also be featuring our newest software product GeoComm GIS Data Hub, a GIS data management solution that provides GIS data insights to 9-1-1 authorities. Also stop by to learn more about our latest pilot project aimed at improving Indoor Location Accuracy.

Conference Presentations:

In addition to our many booth activities, multiple GeoComm team members will be presenting at several different breakout sessions.

Deb Rozeboom and Brooks Shannon will be presenting on Monday, June 5 at 3:45 p.m. This presentation titled Lean and Mean Mission Critical GIS for NG9-1-1 will focus on the critical role GIS will have in NG9-1-1 systems and share real life examples gathered from agencies that have prepared their GIS data for NG9-1-1.

Brooks Shannon will be presenting on Monday, June 5 at 5:00 p.m. on Confessions of an ECRF: The Untold Story of Critical NG9-1-1 Component. This presentation will focus on the more complex side of the Emergency Call Routing Function (ECRF) and how it helps enrich call-taking and dispatch with additional data and extended functions.

Brooks will also be part of a co-operative presentation on Wednesday, June 7 at 2:45 p.m. on Take it Home: NG9-1-1 Next Steps for Managers and Stakeholders.
