SAS 4th Graders are Taught how to Handle an Emergency

A Guest Speaker from Onondaga County Department of Emergency Communications 911 Center Teaches SAS Atoms how to Handle an Emergency

Thursday, December 15th, 2022: Regina Morris from the Onondaga County Department of Emergency Communications 911 Center came to SAS Elementary School to speak to our 4th graders. Regina spoke about what to expect when you call 911, what questions they ask, and why 911 operators have to ask so many questions when someone calls. She also explained the difference between an emergency vs. a non-emergency and how to contact 911 through nonverbal means, the use of interpreter service, or TTY. The Onondaga County Department of Emergency Communications' goal is for citizens of all ages to be well-versed in their role in ensuring an effective and efficient emergency response for themselves and their fellow citizens. We are very grateful for the valuable information that was shared with our 4th-grade atoms!
