Public Education

It is our mission to provide public education to citizens and communities on the proper use of the 9-1-1 emergency system to expedite emergency responses in a heightened effort to save lives and property.

ETCOG's Public Education program's goal is to promote citizen awareness and involvement with emergency service providers, assist mutual jurisdictions in complying with local, state and federal guidelines to accomplish ETCOG's organizational mission and objectives.

Do you need someone to speak to your group about 9-1-1? Contact Pattie Hanon for assistance.
