Upcoming Workshop: California 9-1-1 ‘Challenges and Needs’
February 14, 2018        4-5 pm        Cannon 234

Dear Colleague,

Next week will mark 50 years since the first 9-1-1 call was made in Haleyville, AL.  February 16, 1968 marked a new age in public safety, and saved countless lives.  In honor of the date, 9-1-1 professionals from California will be making a visit to Washington,
DC to speak on how far we’ve come, and how far we have to go.

Rep. Torres & Rep. Eshoo will be hosting a workshop for Congressional staff and others to learn about California’s challenges and needs in modernizing the state’s 9-1-1 systems to Next Generation 9-1-1 NG911).  Speakers will include Cal OES, representatives
from Cal Fire Dept., PSAP’s, the FCC, and the National 911 ?Program Office.?

A full invite and speaker list will follow later this week.  We hope you will join us and learn more about this important topic. 



Rep. Norma J. Torres     Rep. Anna G. Eshoo


P.S.: Following the workshop, all are encouraged to join the NG911 Institute for the 911 Honors Program.  The Annual Honor Awards Reception is where heroes and leaders in the 9-1-1 field are recognized and celebrated. Members of the Congressional NG9-1-1
Caucus and other Members of Congress and their staff, appointed federal officials and agency staff, members of the public safety community, public safety industry leaders, and members of the general public, are invited to attend.
