Survey Completed on Disabled's Access to NG911

The Emergency Access Advisory Committee to the FCC will meet May 6 to discuss results of the national survey and to plan a written report.

The Federal Communications Commission's Emergency Access Advisory Committee is coming closer to deciding how best to ensure people with disabilities have equal access to emergency services as the national Internet protocol-enabled emergency network, known as the next generation 9-1-1 system (NG 9-1-1), is implemented.

The committee was formed in December 2010 as required by the Twenty-first Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010, which directed that a national survey be conducted within one year with the input of groups represented by the committee's membership. After that task is completed, the committee is to submit recommendations on the technologies and methods to accomplish the goal.

The committee will meet May 6 at FCC headquarters in Washington, D.C., to discuss the results of the survey and to plan its written report on the data obtained from the survey.

For more information, contact Cheryl King of FCC's Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, 202-418-2284 (voice) or 202-418-0416 (TTY), e-mail Cheryl.King@fcc.gov, and/or Patrick Donovan of the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau, 202-418-2413, e-mail Patrick.Donovan@fcc.gov.
