DOT releases final report from 2015 National Address Database Summit
The U.S. Department of Transportation on July 9 released the final report from its 2015 National Address Database (NAD) Summit. IAEM-USA Immediate Past President Bruce Lockwood, CEM, represented IAEM at the summit, which provided a specialized forum for generating ideas and gathering input on the feasibility and format of a shared address database for the United States. Accurate and up-to-date addresses are critical to transportation safety and a vital part of Next Generation 9-1-1. To date, there has been no national database of address points in the public domain. The summit convened stakeholders from all levels of government and the private sector to identify the possible alternatives for developing a NAD, with the pros and cons of each alternative based on real case examples that are currently in place.
