Revised April, 2016
Established 1988. Switched from a printed magazine to an online Web Portal, 2010.
Editor: Randall D. Larson.
For nearly 30 years, 9-1-1 MAGAZINE provided valuable information to the public-safety communications community. Moving our format to the World Wide Web has allowed 9-1-1 MAGAZINE to develop the industry’s first Web Portal, 9-1-1MAGAZINE.com. By moving to an online format, we are continuing to reach a broader audience of emergency communications management, worldwide, and to deliver the best possible marketing value for our sponsors.
It’s been our mission since 1989 to cover the ongoing operational changes and technological advances in 9-1-1 dispatch and emergency communications, focusing on management, technology, and operations. As an online portal to access information, resources, and services within the emergency communications community, 9-1-1MAGAZINE.com continues to bring its readers the best news, commentary, and insight from within the 9-1-1 and emergency communications community through a blending of product-related, technical, operational, and people-oriented stories, covering the skills, training, and equipment which these professions all share in common. We run stories on provocative issues and cover major incidents from both a responder and a communications standpoint.
ARTICLES & PHOTOGRAPHY
We are not currently a paying market for editorial content or photos. However we provide author byline and biography and a web/contact link, is applicable. Our primary need is for 1,500 -2,000 word articles pertinent to our readership and focus. Article/guest column submissions should include a 25-word biography of the author.
We also need photographs of public safety subjects relevant to our coverage as well, to illustrate articles and to feature in our “From the Field” photo department. These should be submitted in high or web resolution.
We do not use poetry or fiction. We do not consider simultaneous submissions. Published content is copyrighted by 9-1-1MAGAZINE.com with rights reverting to the author/photographer following our initial posting. Unless otherwise arranged, however, we ask that stories submitted for publication to 9-1-1MAGAZINE.com be exclusive to our web site as a courtesy for at least 30 days following initial posting. After that the author is welcome to re-post/publish the story elsewhere, although we ask the courtesy of including a notice that the article first appeared in 9-1-1Magazine.com.
9-1-1MAGAZINE.com is intended for a knowledgeable, professional audience. Our target readership consists of 9-1-1 center administrators and dispatch managers and supervisors, police/fire chiefs, supervisory and command staff, and emergency management administrators. Our primary considerations in selecting material are: quality; appropriateness of material; brevity, knowledge of our readership; accuracy; a clear direction and vision; and proper use of the language.
