NFL Legend & 2015 Hall Of Fame Inductee Tim Brown To Honor 9-1-1 Heroes @ Capitol


NFL legend & newly inducted Hall of Famer Tim Brown (Oakland Raiders) flies in to join California 9-1-1 to recognize two heroic youngsters and two 9-1-1 dispatchers at the 2015 California Statewide 9-1-1 Heroes Awards Ceremony presented by 9-1-1 for Kids on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. on the North Steps of the State Capitol (1100 L. Street).

The 9-1-1 Local Heroes® Medal of Honor, is bestowed on an individual who distinguishes himself/herself  by gallantry and intrepidity calling 9-1-1 to help save a life or property, or to report a crime.  Equally as important, this award is presented to the 9-1-1 dispatcher/call taker who processed the call, and dispatched the appropriate emergency response help.  The 9-1-1 Local Heroes® Medal of Honor, was created in 1999 in collaboration with the California State Legislature.  It is now an international awards program.

9-1-1 for Kids is the official voice of 9-1-1 caller training and endorsed by: APCO International (Assn. of Public Safety Communications Officials), NG9-1-1 Institute, NENA (National Emergency Number Assn.), and NASNA (National Assn. of Nine-one-one Administrators), and the California Department of Education.
