Preparing for the unexpected, such as making a READY Kit and developing a family communications plan, are the same for both a natural or human-caused emergency. However, there are important differences among disasters that will affect the decisions you make and the actions you take. Some natural disasters are easily predicted, others happen with little or no warning. Planning what to do in advance is an important part of being ready.

Thank you for your interest in our Be READY class. Registration has closed. Please watch our website and social media pages for other upcoming classes.

9-1-1 For Kids

  • Next Class Dates TBA
  • Parker Police Department
  • 18600 E. Lincoln Meadows Parkway

In 2016, the Parker & Lone Tree Communications Center received 17,136 calls on the 9-1-1 system. While across the country over 240 million calls are received at 9-1-1 centers. Many of these callers are young children who may be frightened and alone. Unfortunately, children are usually unfamiliar with what to do and say once they have reached the 9-1-1 center. With the growing need to educate children about using 9-1-1, there has been a program created called 9-1-1 for Kids, Inc.®
The goal of the program is to teach all of the young children in the Parker and Lone Tree area about the importance of 9-1-1 and how to use it if they have an emergency. With the growing use of cell phone service and other optional telephone services like VoIP, it is of the utmost importance to continue a dialogue with the community about how to report and handle any emergency situation.
