In February, President Kelle Simon and President Elect Jeremy Hill traveled to the Nation’s Capital to participate in the annual NENA event, 9-1-1 Goes to Washington. The event is “…a significant opportunity to shape the nation’s emergency communications policy agenda.” During the days on Capitol Hill, Kelle and Jeremy had the opportunity to meet key politicians and kept the topic of reclassification for Emergency Dispatchers in the forefront of discussions. While not everyone will have the chance to participate in 9-1-1 Goes to Washington, one thing agencies can do at the local level is contact Congressman Joaquin Castro, who is on the committee reviewing the bill. Invite your legislators into your centers to give them first hand knowledge of what it is we’re doing 24/7 as the First, First Responders!
How would you prepare your emergency communications center if you could see into the future?
