NATIONAL EDUCATION MONTH
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
to go to your child's or grandchild’s class and read about 9-1-1.
WE ALL NEED TO GET
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.
kick-off event in Washington, DC will occur on April 9, 2010. The
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!

The E9-1-1 Institute
Announces Board of Directors
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.
