Morgan County EMCD 911 believes that community involvement is an integral part of the public safety response network. Educating the public on what services are available, what their role is in an emergency, and what to expect should they call for emergency services is a vital part of this network. We offer several different types of programs to bring this information to the community. From programs in the schools to neighborhood meetings, Morgan County 911 is there when you need us—before and after the call.
PreK to 1st Grade:
“It’s Time to Call 911.” Let one of our telecommunicators read this book to your class. Your school library will receive a FREE copy of this book after our presentation.
2nd Grade to 3rd Grade:
“Impatient Pamela Calls 911.” Have one of our telecommunicators read this book to your class. This book teaches your child about the importance of knowing their address and telephone number. It teaches your child about emergencies and when to call 911. Each student receives a “Learn About 911” coloring book to take home.
4th Grade and Up:
“Who We Are and What We Do.” One of our staff members would be glad to talk to your students about a job as an emergency services dispatcher. Actual 911 calls are played for the audience during this presentation. Each presentation is tailored to suit the age of the audience. There will also be a question and answer session after the presentation.
Did you ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes of your 911 call? Have one of our telecommunicators speak at your engagement. From Neighborhood Watch meetings to community service organization meetings, we will present “Who We Are and What We Do.” Our presentation introduces you to what happens when you call 911, why time is critical in an emergency, what you can do before you call, and answers the question: “Why do you ask so many questions?” There will also be a question and answer session.
