Connor Jones’s project to become an Eagle Scout is an ambitious one.

The 17-year-old Stephenville High School senior is creating a 9-1-1 registry to help residents with disabilities and health concerns receive faster help from local first responders.

“This project will allow those individuals to register their name, address and phone number into the 9-1-1 dispatch system so it is flagged when they call,” Connor told Beneath the Surface News.

Registration forms can be found in Stephenville at the public library, senior center and police department.

Stephenville Police Chief Dan Harris called it an “honor” to partner with Connor on his Eagle Scout Project.

“Connor’s work will help us be better prepared to safely and effectively respond to situations when a rapid response is critical,” Chief Harris said.

Connor is the son of Wes and Kaci Jones.

He plans to attend Tarleton State University after he graduates.

Does the fire department have a place that people can leave a house key if they live alone? This would be such a great help.




What a great idea! Thank you for doing this! I have a progressive disability condition and this will be very helpful.
