MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Enhanced 911 Board is taking part in a nationwide campaign to recognize the importance of being able to seek help in emergencies via 911 and to make sure people are up to date with the latest technology.

The board says that changing technology - such as the prevalence of cellphones and the ability to send emergency text messages to 911 - demonstrate why ongoing public education is needed to keep the public informed.

April has been proclaimed “911 Education Month.” There will be informational events at senior centers, service clubs and school safety days around the state.
