expected to be ready for use in the year 2021. for more, we're joined here by the executive director of crisis support servitors of alameda county. thank you so much for being here. how do you think this would affect suicide prevention efforts in the future? >> i think that we are most excited about is the result of having a shorthand number for crisis intervention and suicide prevention. i think young people will learn about 911 from elementary school age and hopefully, this new number will make it possible for us to be having these conversations about mental health and suicide prevention starting early and maybe people won't have as much of a hesitation about reaching out. >> certainly simplifies the process as well. it is a three digit number that i need to remember if myself for a family member is in the mental health crisis. >> definitely. i think there are some estimates from the national suicide prevention lifeline that they say in this new three digit number, the number of

4:19 pm
, less than 10% of vehicles would be considered severe. now, that number has been up in the last couple of years. we are definitely feeling the stress that both are feeling and the increase in suicidal thinking. >> those are in fact some startling numbers your sharing with us tonight. talking about how important these goals are. what is the research show about a person's interaction with someone in a crisis center? >> one of the i mary protective factors against suicide is really connection. that's what crisis centers offers. crisis centers offer a positive connection, 24/7, regardless of high isolated or upset or lonely somebody is feeling in their own lives. one of the things that make it special is the fact that we have so many volunteers on- site. we have about 200 volunteers here in alameda county answering these goals. it is really the sense of neighbors caring about neighbors and that number of connection really impacts people. we know that even in a 10 minute call, the degree of the stress that simply maybe

4:35 pm
information that we are requiring cell phone retails to provide is the same information the fcc over the mandates that cell phones include. so, we weren't requiring any additional information beyond the fcc disclosures. it is important that people know how to properly use the device. that is the purpose, to provide information so people can use the device safely. >> the wireless association, they challenge the audience in berkeley, they pointed a fact that the fcc, at this point, is no scientific evidence establishing a causal link between cell phone use and cancer or other negative health problems. what do you say in response to that and all the warnings being posted in berkeley misleading at all? >> i don't believe them misleading. these are disclosures that the federal government already requires that cell phone companies must include. the information is with the content neutral around the
4:36 pm
health effects of technology on individuals and merely just providing information about how people can safely use their device. we do know that there is some degree of radiation when you come to use your device, this is just basic information every consumer should have. >> how concerned do you think the average person should be about the health effect of using their cell phones or having those wells close to their bodies? >> every time you have a device emitting radiation, there is some inherent risk. that is the reason why the federal government over the mandates this information be provided to consumers, not only upon purchase but also in the phone itself. if you actually search through your phone under settings, see the disclosures there. >> let me ask you, because you know in san francisco, the cell phone industry, they were successful in challenging an ordinance there that would have required something that sounds similar, retailers do kind of handout a fact sheet labeling
4:37 pm
so that missions as a possible carcinogen and that was successfully shot down. it seems similar to what you're doing in berkeley but a busy, there must be a distinction. what the thing your warning was allowed to stand by the courts.? >> the difference between san francisco's warnings and berkeley's warnings is they have adapted language that is far more extensive than what fcc mandates. it did make actual value statements about the impact of cell phone use on health. and, they were able to strike down the state as. what we elected to do was just ensure that the information is already mandated by the federal government, we provided much more transparently to customers when they purchase the devices at the actual science never required to be posted on the stores, to reflect the fcc mandated disclosures. we i think, took a safer path
4:38 pm
by aligning our state it's with those that are already provided. i want to commend our outside counsel who did and it's credible job on my this is important and preserving local rights to protect safety. >> to wrap up, let's talk about the brother implications of this really but the high court. do you believe that this is going to open the door for other cities out there, other states across the country to require cell phone retailers to post these similar health warnings? >> i hope so. i think that consumers had the right to know and this information is already buried in your phone. by requiring this information to be provided in a more transparent fashion, people can make their own decisions about how to use their devices safely and, i think people have the right to know this information. >> that was the mayor of berkeley. we always appreciate your time. thank you, mr. mayor. >> thank you so much. foggy, foggy friday.
