What kinds of terms, abbreviations, and acronyms are included in this glossary?

The NENA Knowledge Base glossary is not intended to provide definitions for common terms, acronyms, or abbreviations. Generally, common terms that are more extensively defined or described in other references (like Wikipedia) should not be included in the glossary unless they include hyperlinks to NENA documents where they are used or discussed in a 9-1-1 context not likely to be mentioned in other public references. For the convenience of the reader, some common terms that have been in the glossary for some time may remain in the glossary but if better definitions are available elsewhere, links to those definitions should be provided. The NENA Knowledge Base glossary is primarily intended to provide definitions for terms that are uniquely used in the 9-1-1 community, especially those used in published NENA documents.

The terms, acronyms, or abbreviations included in the glossary should have at least one of these characteristics:

  • They have a definition or usage unique to the 9-1-1 community.
  • They have several possible meanings but are expected to be used in a consistent way in NENA publications.
  • They may have a common, popular definition, but are used consistently with a unique or specific meaning in NENA publications.
  • They have an important use in a published NENA document, and the glossary provides hyperlinks to the document where the term is discussed.

Terms, acronyms, and abbreviations that should NOT be included in the Master Glossary include those with these characteristics:

  • They are only expected to be used in one document.
  • They do not have a definition or usage unique to the 9-1-1 community.
  • Other public references provide good definitions.
