911 for Kids

The 9-1-1 Kids Program was developed in 1998. Personnel from the Communications Center began visiting various schools throughout the county towards the end of the 1998 school year. Now that the new school year has begun, we again are aggressively striving to make sure we visit all schools in the county. The programs purpose is to explain to children what to expect when they call 9-1-1, what kind of questions will be asked of them and a brief overview of how the system works. The program is highly interactive, going through several different situations, asking children if it is proper to use 9-1-1 in that situation. The program is approximately 15-20 minutes in length, however, this time does vary as the program seems to change with every class due to the interaction that takes place with the children. The program concludes with the distribution of coloring books and book markers. To date the program has been presented to approximately 50,000+ children in 40+ schools. Any fire or police department that would be interested in having the program presented in a school within their jurisdiction.

The program can be done as a stand alone or in association with a fire safety or DARE program. We encourage the local fire and police departments to participate.
