FDL County Communications Center Hosts Open House

Fond du Lac County residents got to see how the County’s Communication Center works during an open house Wednesday evening. The event was in honor of Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. County Communications and Emergency Management Director Bobbi Hicken says they had several different stations set up. At one they showed how high priority dispatch works. She says that is how they give CPR instructions and people got to see how the promptings occurred. At another station residents could see how cellular 911 works. Of course two other stations were handling the live calls that were coming in from across the County. Residents also got a chance to snack on cake and visit with the 911 mascot Red E. Fox during the two-hour open house.
