9-1-1 System Processes

 

  • 9-1-1 is mostly called from a wireless device. The Nine Eleven National Association (N.E.N.A) shows that “An estimated 240 million calls are made to 9-1-1 in the U.S. each year. In many areas, 70% or more are from wireless devices.”

There are different process for 9-1-1 calls:

Basic 9-1-1:

  • Basic 9-1-1 means that when the three-digit number is dialed, a call taker/dispatcher in the local public safety answering point (PSAP), or 9-1-1 call center, answers the call.The emergency and its location are communicated by voice (or TTY) between the caller and the call taker.

    Enhanced 9-1-1:

    In areas serviced by enhanced 9-1-1, the call is selectively routed to the proper PSAP for the caller’s location, and the PSAP has equipment and database information that display the caller’s phone number and address to the call taker. 93% of counties with 9-1-1 coverage have enhanced 9-1-1 for callers. The term “enhanced 9-1-1” is not synonymous with wireless 9-1-1.

    Wireless Phase I:

    When Phase I has been implemented, the call taker automatically receives the wireless phone number.This is important in the event the wireless phone call is dropped, and may allow PSAP employees to work with the wireless company to identify the wireless subscriber.Phase I also delivers the location of the cell tower handling the call. The call is routed to a PSAP based on cell site/sector information.

    Wireless Phase II:

    While this is the ideal of that phase of 9-1-1 according to the USA today operators give as a testimony that “There are times when it doesn’t come up at all. Every day we receive calls where we get a tower address and that’s it.”

  • Phase II allows call takers to receive both the caller’s wireless phone number and their location information.The call is routed to a PSAP either based on cell site/sector information or on caller location information.

    9-1-1 Calls through VoIP:

    Business and residential use of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telecommunications services is growing at a rapid pace.Methods to bring 9-1-1 calls into E9-1-1 systems have recently become available, and NENA is leading work to develop full E9-1-1 capability for VoIP-based services.

    Next Generation Trends:

    Estimates are that nearly 29.7% of all U.S. households currently rely on wireless as their primary service as of June 2011 (having given up wireline service or chosen not to use it). (CTIA – Wireless Quick Facts – Dec 2011)

History Of 911 System

  • In 1960, United States did not have the 911 system
  • Los Angeles had 50 different police departments and just as many phone numbers.
  • There was lack efficiency of calling for aids, you need to know the phone number from different departments in  
  • National Fire Chief’s Association suggested a national emergency phone number to the system in 1957 and the President Lyndon B. Johnson started to take action for the improvement 10 years later.
  • In 1967, the Federal Communications Commission worked with the AT&T Company, so they came up with a convenient number (911) as a universal number for emergency.
  • According to the statistics of emergency showing approximately 26% that citizens were able to contact the local emergency services. In 1989, the number had risen up to 50 %. Moreover, the number of U.S citizens approach to 99% that they can access their local emergency services by calling 911.
  • The idea of 911 being created was originally came from British in 1937.
  • On February 16, 1968, Senator Rankin Fite completed the first 9-1-1 call made in the United States in Haleyville, Alabama. The serving telephone company was then Alabama Telephone Company. This Haleyville 9-1-1 system is still in operation today.
