On October 10 of this year, we saw the third anniversary of the very first Next-Gen 911 call in Alabama. Before that, in 2018, we celebrated 50 years of 911. This year is 52. As someone who doesn’t have a public safety background, 911 not existing was never something I thought about. I’d never considered there hadn’t always been a simple, three-digit number to call for help. I was a bit naive to believe that, I guess.
