The State 911 Department (Department) is hosting Training/EMD/911Forums at various locations throughout the Commonwealth to discuss and answer questions on its Training/EMD programs and other 911 initiatives.
These Forums are open to Chiefs/Managers from Police, Fire and EMS services, as well as to other personnel from these services who are involved in the preparation of the Department’s Grant applications and reimbursement forms for their respective communities.

If you require assistance, please check off the box on the application form when registering for the Training/EMD/911 Forum.
