Here are the materials:

As we shared, we spent the last two weeks gathering feedback from our members and stakeholders. Here’s what we heard and observed:

So, what is the “thing” we are trying to do this year? After our three month exploratory phase, we have determined that through the people power of the Network, we will build a prototype that formalizes the structure and analysis of 911 call data so that 911 administrators and researchers can better understand their jurisdictions call data and draw more relevant comparisons to jurisdictions across the country.

Data uniformity enables jurisdictions to be data-driven as they work to improve their emergency response services.

The prototype we build will aggregate, transform, and disseminate public 911 call-for-service data through open source software and with a crowdsource approach, utilizing the skill and scale of the Network through National Action Teams.

Here is snapshot of our 2022 plan.

And together, we have sketched out what the future of Reimagine 911 may look like:

Lastly, after loads of conversations, we have suggested that we reformat the working groups to activity-based teams. We hope this will ensure that we’re working towards commons goals.
With activity-based teams we are better situated to organize members around project activities with clear scope, schedule, and deliverables, which will allow for greater participation and member engagement.

Here’s what activity-based teams may look like:

Lastly, we are dedicated to making improvements to the National Action Team member experience.

Here’s what we’re working towards:
