What is new in 9-1-1 Public Education?
Cell Phone Sally – communicates wireless phone and 9-1-1 issues to kids ages 4 to 7.
South Plains Association of Governments has now implemented text to 911 in all of the SPAG region. This gives an individual the capability of texting a 911 communicator and engaging in a conversation when the caller is unable to speak. The idea of texting is to “Call when you can, Text when you can’t”.
What does 9-1-1 Public Education Emphasize?
In a statewide campaign entitled “Help Us Help You”, Public Educators use radio, television and resource materials to reach out to Texas Communities. The goal of the campaign is to educate Texans for emergency preparedness focusing on four basic messages:
- 9-1-1 Speaks all languages
- 9-1-1 Addressing
- 9-1-1 Basic Information
- Know your Location
Public Education resource materials are printed in English and Spanish and are available upon request along with a variety of items such as pens, pencils, key chains, etc.
