NGEN 9-1-1 Project Celebration. Where is Coto?

NGEN 9-1-1 Project Celebration. Where is Coto?

The OCSD cordially invites you to attend a ceremony recognizing the recent completion of the Cellular 9-1-1 Deployment Project in Orange County. The event is scheduled for Monday, December 11, 2006 at 10:30 to 11:00 a.m. at the Orange County Transportation Management Center 6681 Marine Way, Irvine, 92618.

This three-year project involved cooperation and coordination between the State of California’s Department of General Services 9-1-1, twenty-three Orange County Public Safety 9-1-1 Dispatch Centers and five Wireless Service Providers (Verizon, Nextel, Sprint, T-Mobile, Cingular).

The result of this project provides cellular phone users within Orange County, a rapid and more efficient9-1-1 emergency services response.

Please join Orange County Sheriff Michael S. Carona, Irvine Police Chief Dave Maggard representing theOrange County Police Chiefs’ and Sheriff’s Association, and Division Chief Skip Carter of the CaliforniaHighway Patrol, and other members from public safety agencies, for a ceremony recognizing the highlights and partnerships involved in this significant project.

CotoBuzz readers may recalled that we recently had to use the old 911 number, and no-one responded. A CHP representative told us that the call center agent did not know where Coto de Caza was – perhaps NEX-GEN-911 takes care of that issue?
