Improving 9-1-1 Reliability on FCC’s November Open Meeting Agenda
Thursday, October 27, 2022 | Comments

The FCC will consider an item to improve 9-1-1 reliability at its November Open Meeting.

Each year, an estimated 240 million emergency calls are made to the nation's more than 5,700 9-1-1 call centers. When 9-1-1 outages occur, action is needed to help the public maintain access to emergency responders.

The commission will consider rules to ensure that 9-1-1 call centers receive timely and useful notifications of network disruptions that affect 9-1-1 service, which will help them to inform the public when to use alternatives to call 9-1-1. The rules would also harmonize and maintain certain 911 reporting and certification requirements that will help improve 9-1-1 reliability.

The meeting is scheduled for November 17, 2022.
