Parent/Teacher Resources

Thank you for your interest in 9-1-1 education for children. Below you will find several resources to support 9-1-1 education in your classroom.

9-1-1 Education for Children Curriculum

9-1-1 for Children offers lesson plans, discussion questions, background information, and activities to support 9-1-1 education in the classroom.


If you are interested in having a 9-1-1 dispatcher make a presentation at your school, contact the Bureau by email to, or by phone, 1-207-287-3831, at least 2 weeks in advance. Make sure you tell us the name of the school, its location, contact information and the date requested (if known). The Bureau will try to match you up with a 9-1-1 educator from your area.

Letter to Parents

You may find the following letter helpful to let parents know that 9-1-1 was taught in your classroom. Many parents are still unaware of the availability of 9-1-1 service in Maine or about its proper use. It also refers them to this web site for more information.
