  • Toward Zero Deaths: A National Strategy on Highway Safety (NCHRP 17-51)
    An initiative to develop a 25-year vision for reducing the nation’s highway deaths by developing champions in organizations that impact highway safety through engineering, enforcement, education, EMS, policy, public health and communications. In 2010, a series of white papers outlined the national strategy (NASEMSO co-authored the EMS white paper). Additional funding in 2011 from the TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) is producing a framework and marketing strategy. Dia Gainor and Mary Hedges are NASEMSO’s representatives on the Steering Committee; contact person is Kelly Hardy. NASEMSO member on the NCHRP 17-51 Panel is Dolly Fernandes; contact person is Chuck Niessner. more details

  • WNNG: “What’s Next - Next Generation 9-1-1” | Timeline: 2010-2012
    The project is intended to create the foundation for emergency communications in a wire-less mobile society. In August 2011, TSAG’s multidisciplinary group released NG9-1-1 What’s Next Forum Report, a series of white papers created by stakeholders in four emergency response disciplines—law enforcement, fire-rescue, emergency medical services and transportation—addressing the future of the Next Generation 9-1-1 system. Dia Gainor is NASEMSO’s representative. news release | report
