The King County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting a ‘9-1-1 Citizen’s Academy’ in Renton from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 27.
“The academy will educate citizens about the role 9-1-1 Communications Specialists play in the public safety system and will prepare them should they ever need to call 9-1-1,” reads an announcement.
This one day informational class will include everything from the history of 9-1-1 to how citizens can help 9-1-1 help them. A tour of the KCSO 9-1-1 Center is included, and optional “plug-in” time will be offered to academy attendees on follow-up dates for those interested.
The academy is open to anyone at least 18 years old with no felony convictions. Applicants must live or work in King County.
