Department of Public Safety Communications and Emergency Management
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our expertly trained dispatchers answer your 9-1-1 and non-emergency calls and send help when you need it.
The Emergency Communications Center is part of the Arlington County Office of Emergency Management. Our highly trained and professional staff receives 9-1-1 calls from the public, dispatches police/fire/medical assistance, and monitors the 24 hours non-emergency telephone line.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We would like to develop outreach postcards to educate the public about the Emergency Communication Center, what we do, and how to use 9-1-1 properly. The first postcard will focus on 9-1-1 v. the Non-Emergency Line (when to use each, for what purpose, and what other resources are available). Once this postcard is designed, we would like to work with the designer to develop 4 additional postcards:
9-1-1 For Kids
Emergency Communications Center
Postcard size = 5x7 inches
Font = size 14
Bleed = at least 1/4"
Attached is some outreach materials for a program within our department- while the materials do not need to be identical, we would like a look and feel that brings all of the materials together
