  • The Sussex County Emergency Operations Center will host its 15th annual 911 Awareness Day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 8 at the public safety complex, 21911 Rudder Lane in Georgetown.
    Come out for a fun-filled day of safety demonstrations and emergency vehicles on display, from police K9s subduing pretend perpetrators to fire trucks, EMS units and police units with their sirens wailing. All activities are free and open to the public.
    The event is held each year to give the public a behind-the-scenes look at how the 911 center operates, as well as give citizens a glimpse into how police, firefighters, medical personnel and emergency dispatchers work each day to save lives.
    The event is sponsored by Sussex County and the Delaware State Police, which jointly operate the 911 center. For more information, call Richard Short at (302) 855-7802 or Dennis Swain at (302) 855-2980.
