Mayor Craig A. Moe and Marty Flemion, Director of Emergency Services, would like the public to be aware that on March 16, 2011, the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) Emergency Access Advisory Committee (EAAC) released a national on-line survey.
This survey will be used to determine the most effective and efficient technologies and methods by which persons with disabilities may access Next Generation (NG) 9-1-1 emergency services systems.  Among other things, the survey asks about accessing emergency services via video, text, and voice.  The results of the survey will inform the EAAC as it develops recommendations for the FCC to draft rules to ensure that people with disabilities can access NG 9-1-1 services.  The survey is available in English, Spanish and American Sign Language (ASL) video).
This survey will be available until April 24, 2011.  The FCC encourages people with disabilities to complete this survey, and share information about the survey with other people with disabilities and organizations that represent persons with disabilities.
