Sources for Information about 9-1-1

The CSEC Public Education Program takes its responsibility to educate the citizens of Texas on the proper use of the 9-1-1 emergency number to save lives and property. 

* Including:  9-1-1 Safety for Kids - Teacher Activities
There are three basic messages for our 9-1-1 education program:  when to call 9-1-1, how to call 9-1-1, and what to say in case of a police, fire, medical or poison emergency.  The links will help you make use of the resources available for 9-1-1 education, including tips, downloadable activity sheets, as well as the full version of our children's video featuring Cell Phone Sally. 

The mission of the AACOG 9-1-1 Program is to work with regional and county 9-1-1 coordinators, local and wireless telephone companies, and telecommunications service providers to ensure that every 9-1-1 call is routed to the correct PSAP and managed successfully.

811 is the national call-before-you-dig phone number. Anyone who plans to dig should call 811 or go to their state 811 center’s website before digging to request that the approximate location of buried utilities be marked with paint or flags so that you don’t unintentionally dig into an underground utility line.
