GeoComm Public Safety Consulting Services completed a study of Iowa’s existing 9-1-1 environment for the Iowa Statewide Interoperable Communications Systems Board (ISICSB). The entities reviewed the existing state of Iowa wireline and wireless 9-1-1 systems to determine how the systems can improve to operate more effectively and efficiently in the future.

Another important aspect of the project included a high-level review of the interoperability capabilities of Iowa public-safety answering points (PSAP)/9-1-1 dispatch centers. This project resulted in numerous short-term and long-term recommendations or achievable goals related to governance, funding, network, PSAP/9-1-1 dispatch center operations, technology, interoperability, geographic information systems (GIS) and legislation.

The recommendations were determined after data collection from each of the PSAPs/9-1-1 dispatch centers in Iowa, stakeholder interviews, and research and analysis. Data collected determined the strengths and weaknesses of the current 9-1-1 environment and allowed for identification of potential improvements in the overall operational, administrative and financial processes.

“The completed 9-1-1 study will help in the planning for the future of the 9-1-1 program in the state of Iowa,” said Barbara Vos, Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management E9-1-1 program manager.
