Roanoke is the “Star City” of Virginia and its E-911 center happens to be full of stars.
We work in a small tight knit community serving folks we know on a first name bases. From August 2017 to March 2018 we suffered great loss.
Personally I wish that we could buy lunch for ALL the communication centers around the country as we are each distinct and special in our own way
We loved pitching in at APCO 2018 and working together to make such a successful event.
Our staff continues to shine and support each other, the community and other agencies; standing up to any challenge presented to us.
I have been with the Staunton City Police Department a little over a year and have seen what our telecommunications center does on a daily basis.
The City of Atlanta E911 Communications Center is deserving of lunch because we ARE the true Super Bowl CHAMPIONS!
We are a fairly newly consolidated center, and our dispatchers have suffered a ton of changes over the last few years.
As the liaison for the Tallahassee Fire Department to the CDA, I wanted to take a moment to tell you about our “First” First Responders.
I have seen this team deal with an impending hurricane, a school shooting and responding to the call for help from a neighbor county after Hurricane Michael.
This past year, the Shawnee telecommunicators faced continuous change, a nation-wide staffing shortage, as well as, the evolution of the 9-1-1 industry.
In addition to being the most fun, comedic, and entertaining group you will ever meet, we also have a chief-approved, live-in unicorn.
It sounds cliche but we truly are a family that will do anything for each other.
In 2018, the whole center stepped up and took massive amounts of training, in addition to their daily dispatching duties.
I wanted to share a story that shows the team’s dedication to our jobs as well as a proven testament to what we are capable of.
While our dispatch family knows how to have fun no matter what we are doing, our jobs are serious and we get the job done when called upon.
In the short time since our Consolidated Dispatch Center went live in October 2018, our Telecommunicators have done a spectacular job.
“I am surrounded by 1000 people, Miami!” yelled the frantic Trooper during a recent demonstration in our city.
