What INENA is all about

The Illinois Chapter of the National Emergency Number Association (INENA) is comprised of public safety professionals throughout Illinois whose mission is to foster the technological advancement, availability, and implementation of the universal emergency number 9-1-1 in the State of Illinois.

markerThis is response to a posting from Governor's Office asking for the citizens to support his request to not signing the 9-1-1 bill.

This increase is only $7.56 a year.  Although it is a large percentage increase, it does not generate a lot of money, about $75 million annually.  The Governor is asking for $900 million just to upgrade the state’s computer system.  This 9-1-1 money must:

  • Upgrade computers systems of well over 100 computer systems statewide

  • Implement a statewide system which is going to cost tens of million of dollars annually

  • Replace the lost revenue from the reduction in landlines

  • Provide operational relief to cash strapped public safety budgets across the state

  • Aid in the consolidation efforts being mandated by the state law

The $1.05 recommended by the Statewide 9-1-1 advisory meant to make the fund and replace the shortfall in the $.87.  The $1.05 cannot and will not meet the preceding points.  The $1.50 generates enough resource to move our 9-1-1 systems into the 21st century.
