SB-5555 establishes Statewide Public Safety Telecommunicator (PST) Training Standard and Certification, a volunteer Certification Board, and acknowledges PSTs as part of the first responder community.

Once the Legislature convenes for its Regular Session on January 10, 2022, we need members to begin communicating with their legislators. Only 1 out of every 7 bills introduced becomes law! Please, help us get this done.

Right now, we will need your help getting the 911 Certification bill passed out of committee.
