DEC gets new 911 URL on Richmond's new website
At Director Willoughby's request, the URL for the Richmond Department of Emergency Communications on the new RVA.gov website is now rva.gov/911. Easier to say and remember, it is also shorter, so that it can be printed in a variety of formats. Please share the new site, and make sure to change the URL on all links that you use and materials that you share.
Help achieve a healthy and resilient Richmond
How can we help our community be more resilient as we see increasing dangerous heat waves, extreme rain events, and other impacts? Take the RVAgreen 2050 Community Survey and check out other options to get involved in the planning process here.

September in review
DEC launches YouTube Channel, new campaign using recordings of actual 911 calls received

Help us to educate the public about 911 by liking and sharing these social media campaigns when they are posted weekly on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, NextDoor and now on our new YouTube channel! Also, let Karen know if you hear a call that can be used to illustrate what not to do or have a quiz question to share with the public.
