📞 56 years ago today, a small town made history! On February 16, 1968, Haleyville, Alabama took center stage, revolutionizing emergency communications forever. Thanks to their initiative, the first-ever 911 call was made, paving the way for swift responses to crises nationwide. From that pivotal moment, Americans gained a lifeline in times of need, ensuring help is just three digits away. Let’s salute Haleyville’s legacy and the innovators behind that groundbreaking call! 🚨
