Support needed to maintain the Cities 9-1-1 Centers!

We have received numerous citizen inquiries regarding newly created legislation.  The legislation designed to revamp funding for PA's 9-1-1 system will remove 9-1-1 Centers from Allentown and Bethlehem.  State House Bill 911 was intended to update the 9-1-1 funding and operational guidelines for the (69) 9-1-1 dispatch centers within the Commonwealth.

This bill, which is currently on the floor of the State House, is scheduled for a vote on April 22nd, and EXCLUDES funding for the City of Allentown and the City of Bethlehem 9-1-1 Dispatch Centers.  If this bill passes in its present form, the two city based 9-1-1 centers will lose funding and be forced to consolidate with the County 9-1-1 Centers.

Please show your support for retaining the services and local control of our 9-1-1 Centers by contacting your local representatives and request they make every effort to restore funding and control for the City of Allentown and the City of Bethlehem 9-1-1 Centers to House Bill 911.
