|Subject:||Legislation – Adding PA Career Fire Chiefs Association to the 911 Board|
|In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation to add the PA Career Fire Chiefs to the 911 Advisory Board within the PA Emergency Management Agency (PEMA).
Since 2015, PEMA has implemented the 911 law and utilized the 911 Advisory Board to accomplish a great deal, including the establishment of training standards, 911 call standards, quality assurance protocols, setting funding priorities, and preparing for NextGen 911.
Last Session, we enacted Act 17 of 2019, which added the following entities to the board as voting members:
I am proposing to add the PA Career Fire Chiefs Association to the 911 Advisory Board as a non-voting member.
Please consider joining me in sponsoring this legislation to include an additional and important voice to our statewide 911 communication system.
