The United States senate has designated April as “National 9-1-1 Education Month”, supporting the efforts of 9-1-1 to provide resources and materials to support public education about the optimal use of 9-1-1 services nationwide. The importance of having a viable emergency system in every community is undeniably one of the most vital services linking the public with emergency services. Public education and awareness is essential in the ongoing success of the emergency communications industry.

This resolution continues the tradition of supporting efforts to further 9-1-1 education, first dedicated  here in 2008.
