Honored For Heroism

priscilla_tsagli_2.jpg9-1-1 for Kids is the official public education foundation for law enforcement agencies, fire departments, emergency medical response, and 9-1-1 communication centers for the United States, Canada and the Cayman Islands; all countries where 9-1-1 is the universal emergency response phone number. Since its inception in 1994, the 9-1-1 for Kids program has prepared over five million children to know what to do in an emergency by teaching youngsters:

  • How to call 9-1-1;
  • When to call 9-1-1; and
  • What to say to the dispatcher.

On Thursday, March 8, 2012 at 11AM, 9-1-1 for Kids will host the Commonwealth of Massachusetts 9-1-1 Heroes Awards Ceremony at the Yard House restaurant at Fenway Triangle in Boston. This ceremony will be held in recognition of the heroic act made by 9-year-old Priscilla Tsagli from Cambridge Public Schools, when she called 9-1-1 while her mother was choking on a gel cap and helped to save her life.

Priscilla’s 4th grade class will be specials guests at this event. The students will have the opportunity to participate in a private 9-1-1 lesson with a local public safety dispatcher and take photos with our safety mascot. Registration begins at 10AM followed by the hero’s ceremony at 11AM. After the ceremony, a hosted luncheon will be provided by Yard House restaurant.
