15th Annual 911 Heroes Awards
15th annual California 9-1-1 Heroes Awards press conference, Thursday, April 24th at the state Capitol.
The 9-1-1 for Kids Local Heroes program was established in 1999 in cooperation with national and international public safety & disaster resistance organizations and government agencies. The purpose of the award is to recognize heroic youngsters who call 9-1-1 to save a life or property or to report a crime and the 9-1-1 dispatchers for their oustanding work. The heroes are nominated by public safety answering points (PSAP or 9-1-1 dispatch centers).
