Province Hosts 2009 Atlantic 911 Conference

Communities, Cultural Affairs and Labour

The Prince Edward Island Office of Public Safety is pleased to host more than 100 representatives and administrators of various 911 services from Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick at the Brudenell River Resort, October 14 - 16, says Communities, Cultural Affairs and Labour Minister Carolyn Bertram.

“The annual Atlantic 911 conferences give the delegates in our region an opportunity to learn more about a broad range of 911 services available on both the national and international scale,” said Minister Bertram. “It is also a valuable networking and learning opportunity for everyone involved.”

Delegates at this week’s conference represent all aspects of the 9-1-1 service industry, including 911 call takers and 911 system and service administrators, telecommunication service providers, Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) equipment providers and others directly involved with 911 systems services. Some of the issues conference delegates will be learning more about include the Amber Alert Program, Pandemic Telephone Triage, Radio Inoperability, Business Continuity Planning, H1N1 Influenza, Critical Incident Stress Management and plans for a Maritime-wide mobile radio communications system.

“This is the third time Prince Edward Island has hosted the conference, since its inception in 2001,” said Minister Bertram. “I welcome all delegates and thank the organizers and sponsors for their efforts to organize and host this important conference.”
