New River Valley Emergency Communications Regional Authority

Submitted by Deborah O’Brien

We are a recently consolidated center in Montgomery County, Virginia. We dispatch 4 law enforcement agencies and 11 fire and rescue agencies. Like many centers we have been low on staff for some time. I am operations manager for the center and couldn’t be prouder of the people I have working for me. They go above and beyond and have been toughing it out with our agency. I couldn’t think anyone more deserving for their dedication to the public and our center!!
