Have you ever wondered how a 911 center works? What happens when you call 911?

Valley Communications Center 911 in Kent is sponsoring a one-day academy to introduce the public to the world of emergency communications.

The class is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 1 at the center, 27519 108th Ave. SE.

Learn about the Valley Com’s national accredited 911 center and meet the people behind the headsets.

The academy will cover all aspects of the 911 process – from the moment an emergency call is received until the dispatcher dispatches a police or fire unit to the incident. Participants will gain firsthand experience of what happens when you call 911.

Limited class size. Registration and additional information about this class are available at valleycom.org.
