ASAP TO PSAP
ASAP SAVES TIME, IMPROVES ACCURACY, AND INCREASES EFFICIENCY BETWEEN PSAPS AND MONITORING CENTERS
The Automated Secure Alarm Protocol (ASAP) is a national service that is the next generation for the processing of information from alarm monitoring stations needing emergency dispatch. This protocol was founded through the joint partnership of APCO, TMA, and NLETS and has received government recognition and funding since 2010.
What is ASAP?
The Automated Secure Alarm Protocol (ASAP), launched in 2011 as a public-private partnership. It is designed to increase the efficiency and reliability of emergency electronic signals from monitoring companies to PSAPs, and utilizes ANSI standard protocols developed cooperatively by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) and The Monitoring Association. With ASAP, critical life safety signals and accurate information are processed in seconds rather than minutes, through the Nlets system of state-to-state PSAP communication, ensuring complete and accurate information is transmitted to the PSAP every time.
