We cut Graham County 911 Live 7/15/2020. Per Terry McLarty’s spreadsheet they are the 102nd site cut live, less Yoder, AMR, Salina-Shawnee-Sedgwick backups that puts them at the 97th PSAP that went live.
Michele Carpenter is the 911 lead supervisor in the attached photo, she was great to work with.
Cole Presley is the Sheriff and he seemed to be very comfortable with the new system and installation.
This last week was a busy one for the team. 11 sites cut live with i3 and 7 sites cut live with RapidDeploy Radius Plus.
This summer is looking to be even busier with the continuation of updates to i3 and the new map with Radius Plus for the remaining sites. In addition, we will be bringing five 9-1-1 centers onto the hosted call handling solution by September with three of them in the next 35 days.
These 12 hour days are busy to say the least.
Across the nation in times of intense personal crisis and community-wide disasters, the first access point for those seeking all classes of emergency services is 9-1-1. The 1200 Kansas Emergency Telecommunicators staffing local and county emergency communications centers that receive these calls have emerged as the first and single point of contact for persons seeking immediate relief during an emergency.
Kansas 911 is celebrating the second full week of April (April 12-18, 2020) as National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. This week, sponsored by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International, National Emergency Number Association (NENA), and the Kansas 911 Coordinating Council and celebrated annually, honors the thousands of men and women who respond to emergency calls, dispatch emergency professionals and equipment, and render lifesaving assistance to the citizens of Kansas. We are enlisting your support in the form of a Proclamation to honor these men and women in our area for the work that they do every day to protect the citizens in the State of Kansas (Fire, EMS, Law and Health Care Professionals).
The importance of recognizing and celebrating the hard work of these dedicated professionals at every level is immeasurable. We are confident you will stand behind the commitment and devotion these men and women provide to ensure the safety and security of the State of Kansas citizens. I have enclosed a proposed message for your signature.
Thank you for your attention to this matter and I look forward to your reply.
Angela Murphy, President KS Chapter of APCO
