The 2016 Motor Vehicle Occupant Safety Survey: 911 Systems

For over 50 years, Americans have relied on 911 to call for emergency services. Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) around the country receive an estimated 240 million 911 calls each year, with an increasing percentage from cellular phones and text messages. Since it was established by Congress in 2004, the National 911 Program has been housed within the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Office of Emergency Medical Services. The National 911 Program serves as a Federal point of coordination for activities among 911 stakeholders and provides resources to State and local 911 authorities to integrate their systems and upgrade their infrastructure
