This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first 9-1-1 call, made in Haleyville, AL on February 16, 1968. For half a century, 911 has been the gateway between the public and emergency help, and it will continue to be there as a lifeline to help people when they need it most. Though the profession, technology and industry have changed over the years, the desire to make a difference in people’s lives remains the same.
