"HELP US HELP YOU"
ANNOUNCEMENT OF GHC 9-1-1 2010 PUBLIC EDUCATION CAMPAIGN HOSTED BY HEC
The Houston Emergency Center will host the Greater Harris County 9-1-1 Emergency Network (GHC 9-1-1) 2010 Public Education Campaign "Help Us Help You" on WEDNESDAY, JUNE 2, 2010, at 1:00 PM.
9-1-1 Call Centers have experienced an increase in citizens hanging up on operators because they get frustrated and don't see the point of the questions being asked. The campaign informs citizens about why the questions are important and the best ways to receive rapid assistance.
Past 9-1-1 public education campaigns have successfully influenced caller behavior and enhanced the efficiency of the 9-1-1 system throughout Harris and Fort Bend Counties.
