RRRDC Public Education


Bennie Sandhofner with a presentation for a nurse’s group

RRRDC has several programs to educate the community about 9-1-1,  the Red River Regional Dispatch Center,  and our role within the community.      One of these programs is the Citizen’s Academy.

The RRRDC Citizen’s Academy group does short presentations to small groups.   Through these presentations, citizens are given the opportunity to learn how dispatchers process information to dispatch policy, fire and EMS personnel.   They may hear telephone calls and radio traffic.   The most common feedback heard after the presentation is that attendees are surprised to hear the number of calls taken at RRRDC and the complexity of the position.
