Sedgwick County Emergency Communications, or 9-1-1, gives residents
opportunities to experience the emergency system from a call-taker's perspective
through the 9-1-1 Citizen's Academy. Residents who participate will get an
inside look at the system, listen to live 9-1-1 calls and radio traffic, and
observe dispatch operations.
The Citizen's Academy is offered on a quarterly basis, taking place on
Saturdays, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
For more information and to apply to the academy, contact Laura Meyers at
click here to download the Citizen's Academy application.
The Emergency Communication’s Internship Program offers college students an
opportunity to observe and participate in a large emergency communications
center. Interns cycle through every facet of the dispatch center including
training, call taking, dispatching for law enforcement, EMS and fire,
dispatching on all three shifts, supervising, and quality assurance.
Interns are expected to work at least three days or 20 hours per week during
the 12-week internship.
Get more information about the internship program, including requirements, and
to download the application.
Be sure children know what 9-1-1 is, how to dial from a home and
cell phone, and to trust the 9-1-1 call taker. Make sure your
child is physically able to reach at least one phone in your
home. When calling 9-1-1 your child needs to know his/her name,
parent’s name, telephone number, and most importantly your
address. Tell them to answer all the call takers questions and
to stay on the phone until instructed to hang up.
If you'd like a member of the 9-1-1 team to speak at a meeting, gathering or
to a classroom, contact Laura Meyers at
Laura.Meyers@sedgwick.gov or 660-4983.
