Public Education and Awareness
911 personnel provide awareness training to 2nd grade elementary students in the Rockford area. Students are able to simulate a 911 call through the use of an interactive phone simulator. 911 personnel are present at a number of community events which include: Rockford Fire Safety Festival, Illinois Law Enforcement Memorial Event at Cherryvale Mall, and various school activities, etc.
Public Education is not limited to students. Many city organizations and clubs have requested 911 personnel to speak at their monthly meetings, luncheons, and gatherings.
Tours of the Rockford 911 Center are allowed through a small viewing area. Groups of 15 or less are preferred. To schedule a tour or speaker, please call (815) 987-5797.
