Pledging to protect 9-1-1

Each and every one of us has an important role to play in keeping our loved ones safe. We want access to help from first responders in an emergency—when we need them the most—and for most people, their first contact with emergency response teams is through dialing 9-1-1. That’s why protecting 9-1-1 resources is a shared responsibility.

As part of Emergency Service Dispatchers’ and 9-1-1 Awareness Week, running from April 10-16 as proclaimed by the Province of British Columbia, E-Comm is challenging British Columbians to take the 9-1-1 Pledge and show their commitment to using 9-1-1 responsibly.

By taking the 9-1-1 Pledge and committing to making the right call, knowing your location, and avoiding accidental calls, you help ensure critical emergency resources are available for people who need them most.

Think about who you are pledging to protect—whether it’s your parents, your friends, your teammates, your siblings or your students—we all have an important role to play in keeping our communities safe.

Take the 9-1-1 Pledge today: Together, we can help keep British Columbia safe.
