Emergency Communications District Board

The Emergency Communications District Board of Nashville and Davidson County has made it part of their mission with 9-1-1 to make sure young children understand when and how to call 9-1-1. The Rescue Rex program is a public awareness outreach effort that is offered free of charge to schools and related groups in Davidson County.

Along with a 30-minute musical show, featuring his 9-1-1 call taker sidekick, Rescue Rex leaves behind special coloring books so the children and their teachers can continue to learn about how to use 9-1-1. Coloring books are available in both English and Spanish.

For more information or to book Rex for a show, call the Rescue Rex hotline at (615) 782-8151 or email
