LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2459, as introduced, Torres. Local emergency telephone systems: appropriate use.
Existing law, the Warren-911-Emergency Assistance Act, requires every local public agency to establish within its jurisdiction a basic emergency telephone system, and directs the Public Safety Communications Division within the California Technology Agency to coordinate and assist a local public agency to establish that system.
This bill would require the California 911 Emergency Communications Office to develop and implement a public education campaign to instruct the public on appropriate and inappropriate uses of the 911 emergency telephone number system.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 53114.3 is added to the Government Code, to read:

53114.3.
 The California 911 Emergency Communications Office shall develop and implement a public education campaign to instruct the public on appropriate and inappropriate uses of the 911 emergency telephone number system.
