Alabama NENA - Next Quarterly Meeting - & Upcoming Events

With the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 situation and the tremendous workload being placed upon all PSAPs the Alabama NENA Executive Committee has decided to cancel the April NENA Quarterly meeting. 
 
As of now there is no plan to re-schedule this meeting and we are hopeful to continue with plans for the July meeting and training in conjunction with AAND. If any committee work, such as conference, needs to be addressed prior to the July meeting we can handle those on a case by case basis. Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns.

This week members delivered generators, tents, sleeping bags, Lowe’s and Wal-Mart gift cards, ice chests, socks and lots of food, water and other drinks. The Calhoun County PSAP employees were grateful, and AL NENA is happy we were able to help.
