Celebrating 50 Years of 911 History

On the historical day of February 16, 1968, the first 911 call was made. 3 digits dialed 50 years ago changed how we react in an emergency.

This year, West celebrates our public safety community. We acknowledge those who’ve dedicated their careers to improving how 911 works. We also look back at the major milestones of the past 50 years and examine some of the current challenges and priorities.
