Dear MI NENA Member:

“For forty years, 9-1-1 has served as the vital link between the American public and emergency services. Public education and awareness initiatives throughout the years have contributed in large measure to the incredible and ongoing success of the emergency communications system as a whole. It is imperative that 9-1-1 professionals, teachers, government officials, media representatives, and
industry leaders are equipped with the tools necessary to continue these efforts in the face of an ever-changing telecommunications landscape, and that citizens of all ages are well versed in the role they play in ensuring effective and efficient emergency response for themselves and their fellow citizens.” (From NENA.org)

The Michigan chapter of the National Emergency Number Association has a goal of assisting the Michigan 9-1-1 community in educating its citizens of the dynamics of 9-1-1.

Along with Public Safety Telecommunicator Week-- April 12-18, 2015, April is designated as National 9-1-1 Education Month. This is an opportune time to not only honor 9-1-1 professionals but to focus on public education.

With technology changes now and in the near future, the benefits of getting updated information to our citizens are limitless.

Below are web-links that can assist your center in doing just that. These links provide
downloadable brochures, press release templates, items to add to your
department's social media, videos and public resolution templates.

Public Education Committee Co-Chairs

Now accepting nominations for the 2015 Michigan NENA Little Heroes Award.

The goal of the Michigan NENA Little Hero committee is to recognize a child under the age of 13 that dials 9-1-1 to save a life, property, or report a crime.

In the past we have focused on the child who has saved a life and had a positive outcome. Our views have changed, in that, we want to promote 9-1-1 to children and recognize and encourage them for using the system to help others.
