The origin of 9-1-1 dates back to 1957, when the National Association of Fire Chiefs suggested there be a single phone number to call in the case of a fire. The US government decided it would be useful to have a single number for not just fires, but all emergency situations. 9-1-1 was chosen because these numbers were easy to remember and had not been taken as an area code in any state. On February 16th, 1968, the first 9-1-1 call was completed by Alabama Senator Rankin Fite.
The obverse of $2 Emergency Response Agency Legal Tender Notes shows Thomas Jefferson in the center. To the left is a colorized police badge, while a police car sits on the opposite side. The words Police 911 are printed along the top of the note.
On the reverse side of $2 Emergency Response Agency Notes is a rendition of the 1818 painting Declaration of Independence. The original masterwork is by the artist John Trumbull, who took nearly three decades to complete it. The painting depicts the Founding Fathers submitting a draft of the declaration to John Hancock. This historical moment occurred on June 28th, 1776. On July 4th, the document was officially signed.
