The first thing you should check out on this section of the site is "Anatomy of a 911 Call" -- Our newest interactive feature which takes you step by step through a 911 emergency call.  If you've ever wondered what a dispatcher had to do in order to get help to you when you call 911, this is a must-see slideshow!

If you are having trouble reading the text, click on the full-screen icon in the lower right hand corner of the presentation for a larger view.

911 Public Education

In this couse an experienced member of the 911 staff will visit your school, community center, or organization and give a presentation outlining just exactly how a 911 call works, from the time you dial the phone until you hang up, as well as what happens in between.  Our public education volunteers will also answer questions and explain to your group or organization all of the "why's" and "hows" of the emergency response system.
