Hitech President Teaches at NENA Conference

Hitech and IntelliSYS presidents team up to teach about EIDDs.

Hitech attended last week's National Emergency Number Association (NENA) conference in Indianapolis, Indiana on Monday and Tuesday.

Hitech President Henry Unger, along with Jerry Schlesinger, President of IntelliSYS, reprised a session they had previously presented at Western Regional APCO on the impending American National Standard APCO Emergency Incident Data Document (EIDD). The EIDD will allow public safety answering points (PSAPs) and communication centers to effectively communicate incident information with other communication centers, public safety agencies, and other authorized entities.

"The EIDD is an important element of Next Generation 9-1-1 that must be shared with the public safety community," explained Unger. "The EIDD is one of the foundations of the NENA i3 architecture that provides for a standard method of exchanging incident and unit information in anĀ  integrated public safety system, even between agencies using disparate computer-aided dispatch software."
