NASNA Supports FCC’s 911 Outage Probe

March 10, 2017–The National Association of State 911 Administrators (NASNA) said today it supports the FCC’s investigation into a nationwide 911 outage this week that affected wireless subscribers of AT&T, Inc. (TRDaily, March 9). “We trust that the investigation will identify the root cause of the outage and identify steps AT&T should take to avoid a recurrence of this issue,” the group said in a statement. “NASNA will do whatever it can to assist the Commission with its investigation, and hopes that the Commission will share the information and findings — to the extent possible — with public safety associations such as NASNA. Meanwhile, if our members or their 911 centers did not receive timely notification from AT&T or its vendors, we have recommended that they report the issue via the Public Safety Support Center on the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau’s Web page.”
