September 10, 2014


Question 1 scope of applications

Question 1: Scope of Applications

  • PSRA-TF has identified the following set of alarm-related applications. Are there additions to this list and which applications should be prioritized?

    • Intrusion events and fire alerts to public/private buildings

    • Public safety communications and alarms on campuses and other secure locations

    • Alarms and communications on elevator systems

    • Dispatch console to EMS, Fire,

    • Firebar Conference Bridge

    • Base Station Control to EMS, Fire and Police

    • Private Line Automatic Ringdown circuits for EMS, Fire, Police

    • Circuit-based paging systems for public safety, i.e. page-out to responders

    • Residential wireline medical alert alarms linked directly to PSAPs


Question 2 current provisioning methods

Question 2: Current Provisioning methods

  • What type of facilities and circuit provisioning currently supports this application?

    • Voicegrade circuits for communications

    • Voicegrade circuits delivering tones for alarm events

    • Voicegrade circuits delivering texts via modem

    • Contact closure on metallic circuits

    • Private Line Automatic Ringdown (PLAR) circuits


Question 3 requirements

Question 3: Requirements

  • What are the unique requirements supporting this class of applications?

    • Reliability

    • Security

    • Latency

    • Station equipment

    • Dependencies on copper facilities

    • Special tagging of facilities in service providers

    • Power (Back-up, time available)

    • Quality of Service (codec performance, timing performance)


Question 4 relationship to fire codes

Question 4: Relationship to Fire Codes

  • What national, state and local fire codes are key to this discussion and would impact (or be impacted by) the transition to new media and IP solutions?

  • NFPA 72 (National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code)has already addressed the transition to IP in Chapter 26

  • NFPA 1221 (Standard for the Installation, Maintenance, and Use of Emergency Services Communications Systems )

  • NFPA 720 (Standard for the Installation of Carbon Monoxide(CO) Detection and Warning Equipment)

  • NFPA 731 (Standard for the Installation of Electronic Premises Security Systems)

  • ASME A17.1 (Safety Code for Elevators and. Escalators)


Question 5 stakeholder organizations

Question 5: Stakeholder organizations

  • Who are the major stakeholder organizations and industry groups that represent this public safety sector?

  • International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC)

  • International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP)

  • National Sherriff's Association (NSA)

  • APCO International

  • NENA

  • NPSTC

  • NFPA—NEMA, AFAA, ESA,

  • IAFF

  • NASFM

  • AICC and associated CSAA


Question 6 future solution roadmap

Question 6: Future solution roadmap

  • Are there specific best-in-class solutions or examples of Smart City implementations that could represent a future pathway?

  • FirstNet

  • The ASAP Program (or The ASAP to PSAP Program)
