The course, called Introduction to Next Generation 9-1-1, will be presented by the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) on October 27, prior to the start of the FutureView Conference. The course will focus on the impact Next Generation 9-1-1 will have on the 9-1-1 community as popular new technologies, such text and video messaging, are integrated into emergency call answering capabilities.
Up to 50 FutureView registrants will be able to register. Upon completion, attendees will earn one credit toward ENP (Emergency Number Professional) certification or recertification. FutureView attendees from 9-1-1 or public safety are eligible and can register at www.pictometry.com.
“As a proud member of NENA’s Next-Gen Partner Program, we are thrilled to offer this unique opportunity to our FutureView customers,” said Pictometry’s Dante Pennacchia , Chief Marketing Officer. Earlier this year, Pictometry provided NENA’s ongoing Next-Gen proof of concept project with oblique imagery from selected PSAPs across the country. “Helping 9-1-1 operations respond better and faster has been one of Pictometry’s missions from the start. As a result, we have become the leading provider of imagery to 9-1-1 and are integrated with every major CAD system. We fully support NENA’s efforts to further enhance future 91-1 operations. This unique course offering will help us meet that goal and will also enable us to enhance the value of attending FutureView for our customers.
