Historical Items of Interest
On March 04, 1994, the first 9-1-1 public educators' meeting was held at the Greater Harris County 9-1-1 Network (GHC), in Houston, Texas.
Ms. Sonya Lopez-Public Information/Education Officer of GHC sent an invitation to all district, home rule city and council of government 9-1-1 public educators to meet at the GHC offices. The message that Ms. Lopez expressed was that everyone had their own problems and concerns about spreading the correct message about 9-1-1. Hopefully, a uniform message for the state of Texas could be established. From this first meeting of 12 in attendance, the official group of the 9-1-1 Public Educators of Texas was formed. No minutes were taken at this first meeting.
