NEMAP - Navy Emergency Management Addressing Project
Track: Computer-Aided Dispatch and 911
Authors: Marvin Garland, Amy Hrdlicka
“Navy 911, what is the NEMAP location of your emergency!?” Verifying the correct location is critical for the Navy’s RDCs - Regional Dispatch Center call takers/dispatchers, first responders and the person making the call. The NERMS – Navy Emergency Response Management System- project is continuing to enhance the 911 posture of the Navy. These enhancements allow the Navy to meet 911 industry standards and recommendations by the US Congress.
NEMAP will help enhance the 911 posture of the Navy as well as have positive ripple effects across the Navy enterprise as well as our local government partners outside the Navy fence lines. The NEMAP objectives are to adopt and establish 911 industry standard; street names, street ranges and addresses to all applicable locations across the Navy Enterprise. This information will then be provided to all Navy groups including CNIC, NAVFAC GRC, NAVFAC PWO, Real Property and Asset Management, iNFADS, MWR, PPV housing, telephone service providers and of course all appropriate EM/911 groups including local governments 911 and addressing authorities.
