Regional Leadership Meeting Scheduled for January 28, 2019

Emergency Communication Network's next Regional Leadership meeting is scheduled for January 28, 2019 at the MnDOT Conference Center (3725 12th Street North, St. Cloud). Coffee and treats will be served at 9 a.m., the meeting begins at 10 a.m. and adjourns at 3 p.m.

The meetings are held three times per year and are an opportunity for the leadership of each region to share and learn from one another. Although we do set an agenda, it is a work in progress and your ideas for discussion are always welcome. We hope regional leaders--both formal and informal--can set aside time to take part in this event.

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Jim Stromberg at

Minnesota Text-to-911 Turns One

Text-to-911 Logo

A group of friends took their pontoon on Lower Spunk Lake for the final cruise of the season. But the motor gave out, and they were stranded. The sun was setting, and it was getting chilly. They needed help, but they couldn’t just call 911, because they were all deaf.

Fortunately, they remembered that Text-to-911 is available throughout Minnesota. DNR Conservation Officers were dispatched to the lake, where they towed the pontoon to shore and brought all four people to safety.

We’re celebrating Text-to-911’s first birthday with success stories like this. Check out our latest blog to read more.
