Interoperability & Data Sharing in 911 Systems


Brian Tegtmeyer  (Coordinator, National 911 Program, NHTSA)

Location: W240C

Date: Wednesday, March 27

Time: 4:20 pm - 4:50 pm

Track: 911 & Alerts

Topic: Interoperability, NextGen 911

Format: Power Session

Vault Recording: TBD

In this session, attendees will explore a nationwide effort to enhance emergency communication and response by enabling better data sharing among emergency call centers. Uniform 911 data will provide 911 and community leaders with essential information to assist with strategic planning, governance decisions and operational improvements.

The focus will be on what types of uniform emergency communication and 911 data can be stored and shared, resulting in the creation of actionable knowledge that will enhance public safety and ensure better emergency response outcomes. Participants will learn about the framework of establishing and maintaining such a data-sharing model in emergency call centers as we'll tackle data-sharing arrangements, including governance and technical requirements.

The aim of the session is to provide actionable insights for enhancing coordination not just within individual emergency call centers but nationwide to facilitate more information about the 911 landscape, multijurisdictional collaboration and more efficient operations.

Takeaway #1: The Future of 911 Data
In this session, participants will learn about an initiative that focuses on universal data sharing across 911 systems. The aim is to improve real-time decision-making capabilities and enable seamless coordination among emergency call centers nationwide.

Takeaway #2: Interoperability and Data Sharing for Emergency Response
Learn how improvements in data collection and sharing are optimizing 911 systems for a more effective nationwide response.

Takeaway #3: Improving Emergency Response with Data
Uncover the ways in which collected emergency data can be analyzed and put to use for improving response strategies, governance, and public safety. See practical examples of how this data-driven approach can yield significant benefits for both emergency responders and the public.
