E9-1-1 Institute

Effective 9-1-1 education is critical AT ALL AGES.  We encourage you to join us in our efforts to promote education throughout the month of April.  

Arrange a school visit to your local PSAP, ask representatives from your local PSAP to visit your school, hold a street fair or block party, offer
to go to your child's or grandchild’s class and read about 9-1-1.


We can never do enough to educate the public about 9-1-1.  The commitment of this impressive coalition of public safety and industry in dedicating time and effort to advance 9-1-1 education will help save lives and will produce a significant return on whatever effort is made.   

In addition to school-based activities, other ideas include
conferences and training events for parents, teachers, care-givers that bring together the public safety community and industry leaders in a common effort to promote 9-1-1 education.

The national kick-off event in Washington, DC will occur on April 9, 2010.  The 9-1-1 Block Party will be sponsored by the Office of Unified
Communications at the Ferebee-Hope Community School in the
District of Columbia Public Schools

E-mail us, tell us about your event and plans.  We would like to
post to the E9-1-1 Institute website!

Legislation Introduced

The E9-1-1 Institute Announces Board of Directors
Election Results

The E9-1-1 Institute shares the mission of  the Congressional E9-1-1 Caucus to promote public education on E9-1-1 and emergency communications issues.  The E9-1-1 Institute’s operations are overseen by a Board of Directors, working closely with the Executive and Deputy Executive Director.

The E9-1-1 Institute Board of Directors is comprised of  fifteen members.  Four of these seats are permanent seats:  They are held by an APCO, NENA, & NASNA appointed representative and the Executive Director of the E9-1-1 Institute.  The other eleven members are representatives from the following constituencies.  They each serve 2-year terms:

Each year, the E9-1-1 Institute holds an election for the Board of Directors.   However, the seats up for election each year are staggered to maintain consistency and prevent a large turnover of the Board in one year.
