Shea-Porter Joins E9-1-1 Caucus

From U.S. Rep. Shea-Porter's office:

Today, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter announced that she has joined the Congressional E9-1-1 Caucus. The Caucus, which was established in 2003, seeks to educate lawmakers, constituents, and communities about the importance of citizen-activated emergency response systems.

“Ensuring our citizens have access to enhanced 9-1-1 is a vital public safety issue,” said Congresswoman Shea-Porter. “I am pleased to be a member of this important Caucus and am excited about the work ahead.”

“The mission of the E9-1-1 Caucus is to advance E9-1-1 and emergency communications across the country,” said E9-1-1 Institute Executive Director Gregory Rohde. “I applaud Congresswoman Shea-Porter for her interest in this critical issue and look forward to working with her.”
