DPI has received three contracts under the Transportation Department’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration National 911 Program. This program aims to coordinate public and private initiatives providing optimal 911 services and resources for authorities.
DPI will manage the three main initiatives as NHTSA engages the 911 stakeholder community in the creation and completion of a national next-generation 911 roadmap, revises the existing Model State 911 Plan and Model State 911 Legislative Language and creating a strategic plan for a nationally uniform 911 data system.
“DPI is proud to support the mission of the National 911 Program to provide leadership and coordination to optimize 911 services,” said DPI CEO Andrea Stone. “With a long history in both federal transportation and national security initiatives, we are honored to be working closely with NHTSA’s Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS) to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce traffic-related health care and other economic costs.”
