National NENA Conference

Mapping the Future of NG9-1-1
As agencies determine the steps necessary to migrate their 9-1-1 communications systems to the NENA i3 Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) model there are many items to consider and the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) requirements for public safety can be overwhelming.  In NG9-1-1 systems, accurate GIS is a requirement since the GIS data will be routing calls to the correct PSAP based on geography.  Learn more about the role of GIS in NG9-1-1 with these opportunities at the National NENA Conference being held June 14-19, 2014 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Conference Presentations:
GIS Track ~ Address Point Assessment for NG9-1-1
Monday, June 16, 2014 ~ 4:00-5:00 p.m.
Even if you aren’t currently planning an NG9-1-1 implementation, it’s not too early to your prepare GIS data – it enhances current operations and prepares your jurisdiction for the inevitable transition.  This presentation shows you how to review existing address points for completeness, consistency, and spatial accuracy, as well as how to determine the synchronization between address points and 9-1-1 MSAG and ALI database resources.

Call Taking & Processing Track ~ GIS Meets the Dispatch:  What is My Map Telling Me?
Wednesday, June 18, 2014 ~ 9:30- 10:45 a.m.
GIS data is vital information provided to dispatchers through various forms of mapping applications.  Where is the GIS data from?  How does it work to plot 9-1-1 calls?  Why is it important for dispatchers learn how to interact with GIS data?  Following the session, attendees will have a better understanding of GIS data and its importance within 9-1-1   systems.

NG9-1-1 Early Adopter Case Studies Track ~ Statewide NG9-1-1 Projects in Maine and Alabama
Wednesday, June 18, 2014 ~ 9:30- 10:45 a.m.
This session outlines how Maine and Alabama are moving from the E9-1-1 environment to NG9-1-1. The discussion will focus planning, coordination, and installation of the system components, the RFP process, data development, call routing, cost savings, and more.

Booth Highlights:
We look forward to visiting with you at NENA.  We’re at booth 301.  Stop by to discuss the latest industry developments with GIS for Public Safety, particularly for NG9-1-1.   Also, we’ll be demoing GeoLynx Server.  GeoLynx Server, which integrates with any Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) or Call Processing Equipment (CPE), combines detailed GIS base maps with real-time emergency call handling CAD and Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL). GeoLynx Server seamlessly connects Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), responding agencies, and field responders.  This NG9-1-1 tool will help you respond, connect, track, and discover additional location information about emergency incidents.

See you in Nashville!
