For more than 40 years, the IAED has been the standard-setting organization for emergency dispatch and response services worldwide, and is the leading body of emergency dispatch experts. We are, first and foremost, a member-driven association working to serve the public through the professional development of dispatchers. We’re home to the top leaders, specialists, practitioners, and authorities of the industry. Our various boards and councils work on behalf of the membership—and in coordination with other influential public safety organizations—to ensure that the comprehensive system of emergency dispatching is as safe, fast, effective, and up to date as possible.
