Nominate a 9-1-1 Hero


NENA and 9-1-1 for Kids are hosting the “9-1-1 Heroes Ceremony” — a press conference where we recognize young children who have called 9-1-1 in an emergency situation and the dispatcher(s) who received and acted upon the call. 

This event will take place on Tuesday, June 28, 2005 (9:30 am – 10:00 am) at the NENA Annual Conference, Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach, California.

Who to Nominate?  If you know of a child, 12 years or younger, who has called 9-1-1 to save a life/property and you would like to nominate them, please complete the attached nomination form.  I will be contacting you shortly to have your Hero participate.

All agencies will be responsible for travel, lodging and incidental expenses for the Hero, dispatcher, and guests participating in the Heroes Ceremony.

9-1-1 for Kids is a non-profit organization who develops a 9-1-1 education curriculum for children ages 4-7 years of age in order to save lives and property.  For more information on our curriculum please go to:     

9-1-1 for Kids hosts the “Heroes Ceremony” to bring greater awareness to the public on how to use correctly our 9-1-1 emergency network.
