The Code of Iowa, Chapter 34A, states that the director of Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management shall appoint a program manager for the 911 program in Iowa. The program manager shall act under the supervisory control of the HSEMD director and in consultation with the 911 Communications Council.

All 99 Iowa counties have the capability of accepting wireless enhanced 911 Phase II service, which provides the call taker at the public safety answering point with latitude/longitude coordinates so they can more readily locate the person who has placed the 911 call.
