PUBLIC SAFETY AND HOMELAND SECURITY BUREAU ANNOUNCES AGENDA FOR

OCTOBER 2, 2013 WORKSHOP ON E911 PHASE II LOCATION ACCURACY AND

AVAILABLITY OF ADDITIONAL WIRELESS 911 CALL TRACKING DATA

PS Docket No. 07-114

As previously announced, the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB or Bureau)
will host a public workshop on October 2, 2013 to discuss recent developments in the use of wireless
technology to contact emergency services.1 By this Public Notice, the Bureau announces the agenda for
the workshop, which will take place on Wednesday, October 2, 2013, from 9:30 a.m. 3:30 p.m. in the
Commission Meeting Room (TW-C305).2
In addition, the Bureau has received certain wireless 911 call tracking data from state and local
public safety entities relating to the provision of Phase II location information to Public Safety Answering
Points (PSAPs), and is making this data available in the record of PS Docket No. 07-114. The data is
available for public access and review through the Bureau's web page at
www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/phase-2-data-sets. This call tracking data will be considered as part of the
record of PS Docket No. 07-114 and may be relevant to a number of issues that will be discussed at the
workshop, including the impact of the increase in the volume of wireless calls to 911.3 The Bureau
encourages interested parties to submit additional data for inclusion in the record for PS Docket No. 07-
114 as part of the ex parte process, and the Bureau will update the web page periodically as additional
data is submitted.
