9-1-1 Phone in The New National Law Enforcement Museum
The historic red 9-1-1 telephone which belongs to the City of Haleyville used for the first 9-1-1 phone call in the nation did not go to the Smithsonian as originally planned. Restrictions placed on the phone by the Smithsonian did not allow the city of Haleyville to “borrow” it back for special occasions. The phone found another home at the new National Law Enforcement Museum which opens this weekend in Washington. D.C. The Haleyville Area Chamber of Commerce President Mike Evans is in Washington for the grand opening celebrations. Mike had the privilege to present Clint Eastwood with one of the City of Haleyville 9-1-1 coin.
