The Denise Amber Lee tragedy in Florida in 2008 rocketed to the national attention because of the absolute perfect
storm of errors and mistakes made that day. This story was highlighted on Dateline NBC, Primetime 20/20, Dr. Phil,
Larry King, Good Morning Amber, and the Today Show. The resulting Denise Amber Lee Foundation was the driving
force behind the recently released, first ever, ANSI Standard for the Establishment of a Quality Assurance and Quality
Improvement Program for Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs). Five foundation board members were on the
national workgroup that crafted the document, including the workgroup Chair, Eric Parry and the author of the
scoring sheets, Sherrill Ornberg. Come and hear these two pioneers and architects of Quality Assurance best practices
