The author argues that government entities, national public-safety associations and industry leaders should invest in training professionals to enhance their capabilities in providing 911 system in the U.S. He believes that end-users are expecting 911 to keep pace with advances in consumer communications technologies. He emphasizes the necessity of thorough education and training of all 911-center personnel to ensure seamless transition to the Internet Protocol (IP)-based next-generation 911 (N911) system.
