Vermont 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Point’s (PSAPs) Weather the Storm
 
This year is the 20th Anniversary of Enhanced 9-1-1 in the State of Vermont. The Vermont
9-1-1 PSAPs and their personnel were tested during the severe storm that hit Vermont last Friday
into Saturday morning and they responded with amazing effort. The PSAPs received a total of
(667) 9-1-1 calls during a twelve-hour period. That is four times the normal 9-1-1 call volume
for that same period based on historic data. The Enhanced 9-1-1 Board wants to recognize all
the men and women in the six Vermont PSAPs that dedicate themselves to always being there to
assist citizens and visitors in a time of need.
