9-1-1 Director thanks voters for support of recent ballot proposal

To the Editor,

As the 9-1-1 director for Lenawee County, I would like to thank all of the voting citizens who participated in the May 3, 2016 election. I am very pleased with the public support and glad to see our focus lines up with the wishes of our citizens that we serve. Lenawee County will now be in the position to proceed forward with replacing antiquated equipment that has reached its end of life. Our plan will be to proceed forward with the Next Generation 9-1-1 services to meet today’s challenges and technology demands which are totally different than what our equipment was initially designed for. After many months of planning and preparing with our committee, I am thankful to the public for hearing our plans and supporting them at the polls.

Lenawee County Central Dispatch receives and sends emergency 9-1-1 calls to all fire departments, emergency medical services and police agencies in Lenawee County.  We have reviewed our plans with these emergency departments, many of which have members serving on our board and committees, and I thank them for their continued support throughout this time.  We could not proceed without these services on board sharing the same focus as we have.

I would like to thank our “Citizens supporting Lenawee Lifeline” group. This group collected donations to help fund advertising so our citizens could better understand our needs and goals for service. A special thanks to the individuals and businesses that provided the donations. We greatly appreciate their support.

Lastly, I want to thank all of those who helped us get the message out to the public. I know there were several individuals who helped in various ways to get our message to the public in addition to what our formal presenters did. We had 22 individuals ranging from police chiefs, fire chiefs, emergency management, state police, sheriff’s office employees including dispatchers, 9-1-1 district board members, county commissioners, county administration and I.T. staff who assisted us to complete 72 formal presentations across the county in just a little over two months time. That was quite a challenge when many meetings were held on the same evenings at different locations.  We were successful in meeting with all of the municipalities in that short time along with presenting for multiple service club groups and other groups such as all of the senior centers in the county. The presentation messages were all of the same thanks to some volunteers of the L.I.S.D. production class and all of the other participants for both videos who played a roll in the production of the videos. I wish to thank each and every person who helped us with this very crucial issue.
