We are delighted to announce the new EENA Operations & Technical Committees Chairs & Vice-Chairs.
EENA COMMITTEES IN A NUTSHELL
The EENA Committees are working groups providing expertise on operational and technical issues related to emergency services. The Committees facilitate knowledge-sharing with the production of added-value documents, and share their expertise via webinars for EENA Members. Committee members are in contact via dedicated mailing lists, where key-issues are discussed and debated.
The EENA Operations Committee creates a set of requirements and recommendations for European emergency services; stimulates sharing of best practices among emergency services; and reviews the different 112 models in Europe.
While citizens use IP-based communications every day, emergency services are hardly reachable by means other than standard voice communications. The Technical Committee works to establish requirements so that emergency services can be accessed via a whole range of IP-communications, as well as to make emergency services more interoperable using Next Generation Networks.
