On December 3, U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert announced filing “The Kari’s Law Act of 2015” in the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill would ensure anyone who dials 9-1-1 would reach emergency services directly.
The McLennan County 9-1-1 District is launching a public awareness campaign to remind the public that 9-1-1 should be used ONLY in emergencies. The District will run ads at the Jewel Stadium 16 and Galaxy 16 movie theaters May 27 through July 7. We expect the ads to have a positive impact and hopefully reduce the number of non-emergency calls to 9-1-1.
