Greater Harris County 9-1-1 Emergency Network
We Will Never Forget

September 11, 2014 marks the 13th anniversary of the Nation’s tragedy when emergency responders from all across the United States were needed, and devoted 9-1-1 telecommunicators were there handling calls from frantic callers. We appreciate their bravery during such a tragic time in our Nation’s history. GHC 9-1-1 Staff and Board of Managers would also like to take this opportunity to honor 9-1-1 call takers, dispatchers, police officers and fire fighters across the Nation who served then and who serve now to protect our community.
