911 SAVES Act

APCO International, KS 911 Coordinating Council, and many other 911 Professionals are working hard to help in the momentum in this new 911 SAVES Act that Congresswoman Torres has stepped up to fight for our reclassification. The bill is known as the 911 SAVES Act, or the 911 Securing Accurate Views of Emergency Services Act of 2019.

APCO International has shared with us a link to give you in support of this. If you go to https://www.apcointl.org/government-relations/take-action/
It’s written so that anyone can send a message to his/her U.S. Representative.  It’s quick, easy, and effective.  (When there is a companion bill in the Senate, which we expect soon, we will be back in touch with a next call to action directed at U.S. Senators.) You can also add your personal message to the form.

We hope that you participate in this movement to improve our professional recognition. Thank you for taking the time to support this bill.

Have you ever needed to track a cell phone to save a life?

As a 911 Dispatcher have you ever had the frustrating problem of trying to get an accurate exact location on someone missing but all you get is a radius area?? We have just the class for you at our Spring Conference!!

The Washington County Undersheriff has figured out a great way to use specific questions with the cell phone company and plug into another program for a more accurate location that you can do yourself in the Dispatch Center.

We all want the best outcome for missing people and he is willing to share his knowledge in a class at our conference on Tuesday April 2nd.

To register please go to www.ksapco.org for more information. We have many other great classes lined up and we want to share all that we can.
