The Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) program is currently being implemented at the state and county level in Washington State to better incorporate emergency calls that do not use a traditional telephone landline to determine locations for response (for example, voice over internet protocol, text messages, and smartphone locational information). To support the NG9-1-1 program, the National Emergency Number Association (NENA), an accredited Standards Development Organization (SDO), has developed data standards at a national level to coordinate data development/implementation efforts across local, county, state and international boundaries. Geographic Information System (GIS) data is included in these standards from NENA.
