9-1-1 Public Education
9-1-1 Public Education Program
The objective of the 9-1-1 ACOG Public Education Program is to educate the public on the proper use of 9-1-1 in order to obtain help in an emergency. We believe it is our responsibility to try and educate our citizens on proper uses of the 9-1-1 emergency number to save lives and property.
The most important messages of our 9-1-1 public education program are:
- Call 9-1-1 in emergencies only
- How to call 9-1-1 utilizing landline or cellular phones
- What to say to the 9-1-1 Dispatcher in the event of a police, fire, or medical emergency
