King County to offer 911 tutorial class in September

We’re all taught from a young age to call 911 in case of emergency. But when a situation arises, it’s common to become stressed out and tongue-tied, and to not know what to say to the operator on the other end of the line.

To help prepare people for that interaction and explain how the dispatch center works, the King County Sheriff’s Office will host a 911 Citizen’s Academy next month. The one-day class on Sept. 28 will cover the history of 911, give tips on what to tell an operator when calling to report an emergency and include a tour of the King County 911 center.

The academy is open to anyone 18 or older with no felony convictions.  Applicants must live or work in King County.

Space in the program is limited, and applications should be turned in by Friday, Sept. 20. They’re available online or by request at 206-205-6625 or email KCSO911.FB@kingcounty.gov.
