THE 4-1-1 ON 9-1-1 FROM BSO

THE 4-1-1 ON 9-1-1 FROM BSO

Sailing ships of yore had the lookout in the crow’s-nest. Foggy London streets had the town crier. Broward County residents have emergency dispatch operators.

Now, one of those voices of calm is speaking out, enlightening the public about issues that could save their lives, explaining how to make the most of the 9-1-1 emergency response system.

Broward Sheriff's Office Duty Officer Bernadette Hreso, who works in the Communications Division, is planning two limited speaking engagements. They’re for parents and children from the “Mommy & Me” and “Daddy & Me” programs run by Amanda’s Place, a learning resource helping parents meet the challenges of raising a child.

On March 6th and again March 14th, 2002, Bernadette will talk about her published articles and answer questions from the audience. Topics covered may include “Why Do 9-1-1 Operators Ask So Many Questions? to “What Should I Do If My Someone Is Breaking-In To My Home?”

These lectures are for parents and children signed-up for classes at Amanda’s Place, however, media is invited to attend. Bernadette’s March 6th seminar begins at 7:30 pm and on March 14th, she’ll begin at 7:00pm. Both events are going to take place at Pompano Beach High, 1400 NE 14th Street in Pompano Beach.
