NENA Training: Addressing for NG9-1-1
NENA Training: Addressing for NG9-1-1
26/30 LEFT $ 140.00 
Virtual
Monday Apr 12, 2021 @  08:00:AM  —  02:00:PM PDT

Please join presenter Jeff Ledbetter,GISP, ENP, for a 5-hour NENA training course on Monday, April 12 from 7am PDT to 12pm PDT.


Course Description: Addressing in the ever changing world of NG9-1-1 hinges on multiple agencies within a jurisdiction, one of the principal departments in this process is GIS. Mapping of addresses, along with assignment of those addresses will make the transition to an NG9-1-1 system more efficient, and will serve to improve public safety overall. This course gives a brief overview of GIS for non-GIS users such as planners who may be assigning addresses, it will provide an understanding of the basics of addressing by utilizing different address systems and how address information is essential for 9-1-1. Students will demonstrate data maintenance and quality control methodologies utilizing hands-on examples where possible.

Oklahoma NG911 GIS: Vision, Partnerships and Training

Tuesday Apr 13, 2021 @  09:00:AM  —  09:50:AM PDT

Historically, in Oklahoma, 911 GIS is only used for the 911 dispatcher to get a visual reference of where a 911 call is at. Therefore, 911 Coordinators did not have to worry about sharing this data or having other people using it for emergency service purposes. During the planning phases for NG911, we looked at other Statewide programs. Some were successful but others were not as successful. The Vision of our GIS team was to ensure that we built a consistent State GIS repository. This could not happen without strong partnerships within the GIS and 911 communities. We wanted to build bridges between these two unique groups to build success. Obviously, or with the State not so obvious, is that we needed to build a training program before we ever started accepting GIS data from the local PSAPs. This class with cover the road we chose to find success.

Tuesday Apr 13, 2021 @  12:00:PM  —  12:50:PM PDT

Communities across the globe have a responsibility to keep their citizens, facilities, public spaces and first responders safe and secure. To do this, it’s important to embrace the ability to map one’s security and public safety systems across physical security, emergency management, operational technology and IT platforms – to avoid and eliminate gaps and risk. Across the spectrum of “PS, OT, IT” technology integration, it also stimulates greater collaboration between cross-functional agencies, teams and departments. Evaluating emerging technologies can be successfully done with a comprehensive view across people, technology and process. With this expert panel (panelists to be announced soon), we’ll examine implications for key emerging tech such as AI, communications platforms, video and IoT and share advice for procurement, project management and deployment steps.

He makes me so mad!” “She made me feel horrible!” Have you ever said something like this, have you ever placed blame on others for the way someone made you feel? If so, you are not alone, but did you know the person responsible for how you feel is you? In this session, we will learn how to better manage emotions, how to deal with various personality types, especially the difficult ones, and how to become aware of the limitations of expectations. By incorporating these strategies those in the ECC will be able to reduce stress and strengthen professional relationships.

Wednesday Apr 14, 2021 @  10:00:AM  —  10:50:AM PDT

The implementation of NG9-1-1 from a statewide perspective is one of the biggest considerations to determining how to deploy NG9-1-1. There are many organizational and technical considerations to create a sustainable approach to NG9-1-1 GIS and best practices are emerging. This session will feature the State of Alabama’s approach to supporting NG9-1-1 GIS from the local communities throughout Alabama.  

 
Deficiencies and Opportunities of E-911 Call Routing
Deficiencies and Opportunities of E-911 Call Routing
Complimentary 
Virtual
Wednesday Apr 14, 2021 @  11:00:AM  —  11:50:AM PDT

According to FCC sources, 12% of U.S. wireless 9-1-1 calls, approximately 25 million annually, are sent to the wrong PSAP, losing valuable response time. The root cause of these transfers can be traced to deficiencies in today’s E9-1-1 Route Selection Process – (A) managing the correlation of answering PSAP to cell-site sector, (B) wireless carrier data tedious workflow done with inadequate information, (C) inconsistent presentation of data from carriers, and (D) outdated tools. This session will discuss the history of wireless call routing, today’s challenges with 3G, 4G, 5G and beyond, and the innovations of location-based routing for improved call outcomes and increased efficiencies of 9-1-1 call center operations. 

Attendees will learn: 

  • What is used to select the 911 PSAP for a mobile phone call? 
  • What is the difference between location used for routing vs location used for dispatch? 
  • What is gained by achieving location-based routing? 


 
Understanding The Impacts Of A 3-Business Day Turnaround For NG9-1-1
Understanding The Impacts Of A 3-Business Day Turnaround For NG9-1-1
Complimentary 
Wednesday Apr 14, 2021 @  03:00:PM  —  03:50:PM PDT

To fully understand how the GIS community will be impacted by the requirements of Next Generation 9-1-1, we must pull the covers back and dive into the details. Dive deep enough and we find in the small fine print of a standard that once an anomaly is identified in the GIS data, we have 3-days to turn that data round and get it back into the ESInet. But what does that really mean? 

?

In this presentation, we’ll learn what it really means to have a 3-business day turn around and how to decrease the impact this requirement might have on our daily workflows.  


 
NENA Standards: Address Points and Boundaries

Thursday Apr 15, 2021 @  09:00:AM  —  09:50:AM PDT

As with Road Centerlines, NG9-1-1 GIS data readiness and effective management of NENA’s required Site/Structure Address Points and Boundary layers also requires a complete understanding of the NG9-1-1 GIS Data Model. Developing GIS data that follows the standards for NG9-1-1 benefits 9-1-1 Authorities in the near term by cleaning up data used in existing 9-1-1 applications and prepares for NG9-1-1 implementation. 

 

The goal of this presentation to bring light to the various standards that impact Site/Structure Address Points and Boundary layers, how to prepare data to meet that standard, and why data validation is important during the data readiness phase of NG9-11-1. 

 

This webinar will focus on: 

  • Site/Structure Address Points 
  • Civic Location Data Exchange Format (CLDXF) 
  • Required GIS Data Layers 
  • GIS Data Validations 
  • Data Maintenance

Larimer Emergency Telephone Authority (LETA) is the governing Authority for 9-1-1 in Larimer County Colorado. LETA supports 25 government partners and 5 9-1-1 centers. In the summer of 2020, northern Colorado experienced 5 wildfires that overlapped and generated numerous evacuation orders of their communities. LETA’s CEO Kimberly Culp will discuss how they use GIS data to pin point addresses in the Emergency Alert System, the role GIS data played during the event, as well as how they used GIS data to help citizens during the evacuation orders.
