The California Governors Office of Emergency Services – Statewide Feasibility Study

Cal OES contracted with 911 Authority, LLC to perform this study, mandated by the state legislature, to explore the feasibility of a new statewide self-registration database system.  The goal of this study was to determine the feasibility of developing a statewide system to enable all Californians, including older adults, individuals with disabilities, and other at-risk persons, to voluntarily provide vital health and safety information, with an encrypted connection, to be available to all first responders in an emergency if a 911 call is placed.

This report details how the Feasibility Study was completed and its findings.  The Study had several objectives and took into consideration the following items as stated in the Manny Alert Act:

  • All database information shall be available to first responders in an emergency if a 911 call is placed.
  • Information submitted through the statewide system will be confidential and not a public record, and information collected can only be disclosed to law, fire, and emergency medical service personnel at the scene of an emergency.
  • Technology used in the statewide system will require the person submitting the information to confirm its accuracy, and will state that the information will be used only by public safety dispatch personnel and first responders for planning for and responding to emergencies that would result in a 911 call.
  • The system incorporates, to the extent doing so is consistent with public safety and is technologically feasible, shared infrastructure and elements of other public safety and emergency communication networks, as specified in the law.
  • The estimated funding necessary to plan, test, implement, operate, and maintain the statewide system on an annual basis.

One of the main objectives of this study was to determine the feasibility of integrating the data mandated by the Manny Alert Act with California’s evolving NG911 system and components (911 CPE, CAD and RMS) at each PSAP in California.  This included the following tasks:

  • Gathering information on existing CAD operations to catalog technology and systems
  • Comparing existing CAD operations and technology to industry baselines
  • Considering opportunities or implications of technology expansion or replacement
  • Establishing baseline capabilities, functionality and CAD system requirements after NG911 implementation
  • Cataloguing CAD requirements, including existing equipment and configuration, integration with telephony, mapping, logging, reporting and call handling
