Rescue 911 in NYS: Help Spread the Word!
911 call centers are vital to the safety of our communities, but our local 911 services lack the funding stream necessary to keep up with advances in technology and new federal standards.
Today, the “Rescuing 911” campaign was launched to call attention to the importance of 911 services throughout New York State.
The campaign is taking to Twitter to spread the word about the important role of local 911 centers in our communities.
Follow along and stay up to date by following @Rescuing911 (www.twitter.com/rescuing911).
You can help us spread the word by retweeting @Rescuing911 so that your followers see the message as well - retweeting amplifies the important message about 911 services.
