Life Safety Education Program

The County of Oswego E 9-1-1 Department's Life Safety Education Program resembles a LADDER extending to the citizens of our community by educating our customers about the E 9-1-1 system. Our goal is to collectively make Oswego County a safer place to live.

Our LADDER is defined as:
Learning about our community
Assessing problem areas
Developing ways to present information to address local needs
Delivering presentations
Evaluating programs, materials and delivery
Revising programs to make them as effective as possible

The E 9-1-1 Department Training Division has a public educator available to address community organizations and schools throughout Oswego County. Our curriculum is age-appropriate, encompassing all ages from preschool through the senior citizen population.

The elementary level curriculum features age-appropriate lecture presentations, videos and props. A 9-1-1 telephone training simulator allows the children to practice calling 9-1-1 and speak to a live telecommunicator. Activity books and other educational materials reinforce our curriculum and provide a lasting message long after the presentation. Similarly, curriculum for the various other age groups is designed to effectively deliver our message.

The Life Safety Education Program has a table top informational display, available for events such as health and career fairs.
