FCC proposes new suicide prevention hotline number

#ICYMI: Laura Mayer, PRS CrisisLink Program Director, was interviewed by the Today Show’s Tom Costello in the CrisisLink call center.

The interview, which aired on November 23, 2019, covered the recent announcement by Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai that the FCC will consider establishing 9-8-8 as a national suicide prevention hotline number at their meeting on December 12, 2019. Laura Mayer was interviewed to share the national importance of this legislation and how it will impact local call centers, like PRS CrisisLink.

Watch it here!

With suicide rates at their highest level since World War II, the FCC has proposed using 988 as a new hotline number to connect callers to suicide prevention counselors. 1-800-273-TALK remains the best way to reach the Suicide Prevention Lifeline. NBC’s Tom Costello reports for Weekend TODAY.

Traffic is always a topic of conversation in Fairfax. Much like the weather, it affects us all and can be quite unpredictable at times. So how do we commute to work?

According to 2018 estimates, in Fairfax County among workers age 16 and older, about 9.4% carpool, 9.8% use public transportation, 1.9% walk or bike to work, 7.1% work from home, and the rest drive alone. On average we spend 32.5 minutes commuting to work, although for 26.6% of workers that travel time is 45 minutes or more.

Did you know that Census data is used to forecast transportation needs and plan transportation projects? When the weather and traffic combine, all bets are off - stay safe out there!
