The 911-S.A.F.E.R. (Special Advisory For Emergency Responders) program is an initiative of the Wilson County Emergency Communications District (Wilson County 911) that began in 2010. The program has been promoted throughout Wilson County in newspapers and radio, distribution of brochures to churches, banks, etc., public meetings, adopted as special projects by civic groups, including Leadership Wilson and by proclamation of County Mayor Randall Hutto. Fifty five thousand flyers were distributed throughout Wilson County in Middle TN Electric Corp. billing.
Through these outreach efforts, thousands of Wilson County residence and businesses have acknowledged the potential life-saving benefit of 911-SAFER and chosen to participate. However, thousands more need to act now and submit their application before a “911” emergency occurs. Everyone is encouraged to participate whether they have medical conditions, special needs or not. Simply having your cell phone number associated with your name and address could help save your life in an emergency situation.
