The Future of 9-1-1

9-1-1 as critical infrastructure

Posted by sip911 on July 8, 2008

Improving our “Infrastructure” has been a low, steady drumbeat by some in the local, state, and national press lately. Many aspects of life we take for granted are badly in need of repair like roads, bridges, and schools . The recent flooding in Iowa and before that in New Orleans reminds us of how important preventive systems are and how much we rely on emergency response when crises occur. 9-1-1 is infrastructure too. And this infrastructure can’t fail. It’s imperative that we become part of this conversation.

I’ll write more on this in the future.
