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.

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.
