   When a child is missing , seconds matter – and now , City of Edmond Public Safety Communications is even better prepared to respond .
   The Edmond emergency communications group recently completed training with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children ( NCMEC ) and is now the first emergency communications center in the state of Oklahoma certified through its Missing Kids Readiness Program .
   The nationally recognized program promotes best practices for responding to calls of missing...... , abducted , and sexually exploited children . Law enforcement agencies and 911 call centers across the nation participate in the training and are recognized for meeting essential training and policy elements demonstrating preparedness for responding to a missing child incident .
   “Every call we receive and respond to is critical in our mind , but when a child is involved it not only heightens that sense of urgency , it takes comprehensive training and clear procedure to ensure we are prepared and respond as quickly and efficiently as possible , ” said Benjamin Curry , Communications Training & Compliance Supervisor for the City’s 911 Emergency Communication team . “Armed with the information , knowledge and operational resources gained through meeting the program criteria , we are now positioned to respond even more quickly , comprehensively , and effectively when a child’s life may be at stake . ”
   To meet program requirements , Edmond Public Safety Communications worked with NCMEC to ensure their missing child response policy met the critical elements of the model policy for call center agencies .  In addition , Curry completed required training and ensured all dispatchers , supervisors and the operations manager completed the online training required for membership .
   By demonstrating remarkable leadership , and making this commitment of training and preparedness , Edmond Public Safety Communications reinforces its commitment to its residents and families and makes sure that protecting the lives and safety of their children is a top priority .
