NASNA and the National 911 Profile Database
You are about to be linked to the National 911 Profile Database, a service of the National 911 Program. Within the next two months, you will receive information from the Program’s contractor Booz Allen Hamilton about improvements made to the Profile Database data collection process and the 2013 data collection initiative.
With a goal of delivering a 2013 data report by the end of 2014, data collection efforts will kick off at the end of July with webinars to provide information and training to NASNA members and other state administrators. These webinars will identify the best practices for using the online data-sharing tool and answer any data or logistical questions. Data collection is scheduled to begin in August.
The benefits of participation are many, and include the ability for us individually and as an association to provide a more accurate picture of important national trends relating to funding, the number of 911 calls, and NG911 planning and deployment activities. This sort of information is valuable not only to us as individual state 911 programs, but also to policy makers, legislators, other state agencies involved in emergency communications, and those who are in a position to be our allies in getting us the attention and resources we need.
The NASNA executive board and I hope you will participate as fully and enthusiastically as you are able!

Please just let us know if you have questions or need additional information. We look forward to working with you to ensure a successful 2013 data collection!
