The Lincoln Emergency Communications/911 Center will demonstrate its 911 Call Simulator at 1:30 today at the "F" Street Recreation Center, 1225 "F" Street. A 911 Emergency Services Dispatcher will use the simulator to teach children and adults what they need to know and what they should do in case of an emergency.
A grant from the Community Health Endowment funded the purchase of the device from Retina Systems Inc.
Those wanting to schedule demonstrations at community or neighborhood events can contact Julie Righter, 911 Communications Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-441-7252.
