This is necessary for this voluntary reporting collection so that the Commission can correct serious inaccuracies and have up-to-date information to ensure the integrity of the Commission's database of Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) throughout the nation. The accurate compiling and maintaining of this database is an inherent part of the Commission's effort to achieve the expeditious implementation of E911 service across the nation and to ensure homeland security.Start Signature
