(Washington, DC) The NG9-1-1 Institute, in conjunction with the Association of Public-Safety Communications-Officials (APCO) International, National Emergency Number Association (NENA), the Industry Council for Emergency Response Technologies (iCERT), the National Association of State 9-1-1 Administrators (NASNA), the National Association of Emergency Dispatchers (NAED),    9-1-1 for Kids and the Congressional NG9-1-1 Caucus presented Kay McKellar of Wenatchee, WA with the 9-1-1 Education Award as part of the 9th annual “9-1-1 Honors Gala” taking place last night in Washington, DC.

As a member of the public safety industry for over 25 years, Juanita “Kay” McKellar has held various roles and positions, and through the years she has helped many children, adults and organizations to understand more about how 9-1-1 works. She played an instrumental role this year in constructing a Public Education teaching booklet to be used throughout the state of Washington to teach others to present 9-1-1 topics and is a recognized leader and friend in the community. She works tirelessly to educate her community, doing presentations with all different ages and demographics, and is often seen securing prizes for charity auctions, and attending hometown fairs and events. Jill Evander, who nominated Kay for the award said “she is a true hero to all of us!”

“Kay McKellar demonstrates how one person can make a big difference” said Gregory L. Rohde, Executive Director of the NG 9-1-1 Institute.  “Kay’s amazing sense of commitment and energy to

9-1-1 education is a model for the Nation.”
