Northern911 offers fire dispatching and 9-1-1 dispatching services to NFPA 1061 compliant standards for clients across North America. Our team of highly trained and certified Emergency Response Specialists currently dispatch for dozens of Fire Departments, First Response Teams and Emergency Service Groups. Whether the departments are nearby, or for those over 1,000 kilometers away Northern911 has the coverage to respond to the call. Our 365/7/24 Emergency Response Centre (ERC) is staffed with professional fully trained operators capable of handling any fire related emergency.
APCO Certified and NFPA 1061 Compliance
In 2009, there was a meeting between the NFPA 1061 Technical Committee (TC) and APCO to discuss the NFPA 1061 document, the APCO P33 document, and to open the dialog between both organizations for the future of these documents. While NFPA 1061 describes individual competency/evaluation, APCO P33 compliments these requirements by defining training standards by which the Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJO), hiring authority, or communication center manager would use to train those that work at a specific facility.
All of Northern911’s Public Safety Telecommunications Personnel are APCO certified. We are listed by Under Writer’s Laboratories of Canada (ULC) and our fully bilingual, 24/7/365 facility is inspected on an annual basis for compliance with their standards. Northern911 has a proven record for exceeding industry standards and always striving for more.
