Alisa Simmons
Marketing and Communications Manager for Tarrant County 9-1-1

Alisa Simmons, 1985, Radio and TV, has just completed a very successful educational campaign for the Tarrant County 9-1-1 District.  Alisa, the Marketing and Communications Manager, is responsible for promoting 9-1-1 use and telling the life-saving stories associated with its use.  The Dallas/Fort Worth market is the 5th largest media market in the country, with over 2.4 million households and over 6.8 million people.  The April coverage included coverage by 17 local network affiliates plus newspaper and radio stations.  You can view the TV coverage given to a recent press conference coordinated by Alisa, recognizing a very courageous woman for her life-saving actions using 9-1-1.  See Video 

Alisa was recently elected by her peers in the 9-1-1 industry to serve on the Board of Directors for the Washington, D. C.- based Next Generation 9-1-1 Institute, which is co-chaired by Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL) and Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA), Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Senator Richard Burr (R- NC).   She has also been appointed to the FCC’s Communications Security, Reliability and Interoperability Council (CSRIC) – Working Group 8.
