911 Emergency Training
At ATI, we are thrilled to launch this public safety training apps for NCT9-1-1. Texas public educators had a need for an interactive digital tool that allows them to teach at public events like school seminars and public events. NCT9-1-1 serves a population of 1.7 million and 10,800+ square miles.
We all know about it and know when and what to do with it. But are we ready when an actual emergency occurs and we, the adults, are not in a position to actually dial 911? Do our kids and family around us know how and when to dial for help quickly? Not just for others, but what if they themselves are in danger?
Calling 911 saves lives because delays in recognition and attending to time-sensitive conditions can be the difference between life and death.
As a mom, I always felt how my kids would handle a 911 call, god forbid, if they had to.
Children are delicate, and when an unknown situation gets thrown at them, kids react differently. Even the smartest would have tough challenges to face a live situation that they might have never thought of. They might have anxiety speaking to non-family members; they may not be ready with the information that needs to be provided to the first responders.
It never hurts, and I would say it is necessary to teach our young the situations/circumstances they have to call 911 and how to navigate the call process. ….
We need to talk, teach our kids about emergencies – be it adults not responding, someone is injured, or there is a major fire or any emergency that beckons the help of first responders. It could be even someone hurting them, or they themselves are in danger. We need to prepare our young ones to face any situation with calmness, thoughtfulness and be mindful of things happening around us.
When we at ATI finalized the project for a 911 education simulator App, my excitement was no less than a little girl jumping around and knew this was the one that is the most needed if kids like mine would get a feel and understanding of how to dial 911 (by not actually dialing it) and get educated on the proper use of dialing 9-1-1, including how, when, why to dial 9-1-1.
It’s wonderful to see the success of the app that we developed and is being used by “North Central Texas Emergency Communications District” and continues to help children learn the use of 9-1-1
I guess you all can relate to me here. Writing a non-technical blog is no easy for me…especially when it comes to one of your own projects that you worked on. Check out our simulator app, and we are listening for your feedback!
Check out the app and encourage your kids to learn young children how to dial 911 and navigate the direction with the emergency dispatchers!
