Read Our Story
Task Force founder Sherry Herzing’s husband, Bob, collapsed and died of a heart attack in August 2018. The loss of her husband was devastating and difficult to accept, but our organization was formed to prevent other families from experiencing a similar loss.
Our Areas of Focus
Our mission is to educate the public and publicly elected officials in order to save lives and aid in improving the 911 operations in the five counties surrounding Lake Gaston: Brunswick, Halifax, Mecklenburg, Northampton and Warren.
We focus our efforts on the following areas of impact…
The current 911 system is configured to route wireless 911 calls to the PSAP based on the location of the cell tower. Critical seconds are lost trying to identify the caller’s location when they are not within the PSAP’s jurisdiction. >>> Learn More
