NENA: The 9-1-1 Association improves 9-1-1 through research, standards development, training, education, outreach, and advocacy.
We are more than 13,000 members and 47 chapters strong - a membership dedicated to saving lives. We work every day on a single, yet vital, mission: providing an effective and accessible 9-1-1 service for North America. In short, we are a membership dedicated to making 9-1-1 and emergency communications work better, and measure our success in the lives that are saved by 9-1-1 each day.
Serving as a link in the delivery of emergency services, 9-1-1 has, throughout its evolution, become recognized as an asset of the North American public. And the NENA organization has been connected to 9-1-1 every step of the way.
Years ago, the National Telecommunications Information Administration (NTIA) sponsored the first three national 9-1-1 meetings in an effort to create industry awareness of 9-1-1 and collect information on emergency systems already in use. In 1982, the National Emergency Number Association (NENA), a not-for-profit corporation, was founded as a result of these meetings and to further the goal of "One Nation – One Number."
From assisting and promoting new system installations, to educating managers on the latest technologies and business practices, NENA and its members have been intertwined with 9-1-1 during the growth and development of the 9-1-1 systems in North America. NENA is proud to share this heritage, and as an organization, we are uniquely positioned to take 9-1-1 to new heights and to meet new challenges.
