Q: Who can participate?
A: Anyone working as or in support of telecommunicators can participate.

Q: Do I have to follow all the social media channels?
A: No. You can find us on any, or all four channels. Each individual follow, like and share on any channel will count toward your total.

Q: Can more than one dispatcher in a center participate?
A: Yes! The more the merrier. And posts from folks at the same center increase that center’s chances of winning.

Q: Can I only post one picture?
A: No. Each participant can post up to three different pictures for contest consideration.

Q: Do I have to be in the picture?
A: No. While we’d love to see your smile, the goal is to share family-friendly inspiration that helps 911 dispatchers stay focused and energized. This might be a picture of a person, place, pet, favorite book or movie, or a quote.

Q: Do I have to follow all 3 steps every time?
A: Yes, please 🙂 When you “like” and “@” tag Russ Bassett we can find you and attribute  additional likes, comments, and shares to you and your post.
