9-1-1 for Kids


The Communications Section has been able to obtain funding through grants that enable dispatchers to provide training on when and how to call 9-1-1 to kindergarten, first and second grade students in the Des Moines area using a program called 9-1-1 for Kids. This program has been very well received by educators and children alike and gives dispatchers an opportunity to provide children with the skills they need so should the need ever arise they will know how to call for emergency assistance.


For more information on 9-1-1 for Kids call the Communications Section Administrator at (515) 237-1529.
