- 7 day a week operations facility. All of our full time dispatchers are OLETS certified. We are currently seeking more training,
such as Emergency Medical Dispatch training, for all of our dispatchers to better assist the people of Latimer County.
in April/May, 2006 we will be receiving our NEW E911 equipment. As of right now, we are using an older version of 911 that is outdated. The new equipment will be of
great use to the people of Latimer County. It will help us determine exactly who the caller is where the caller is located
, and exactly which department to send, depending on the emergency. Mapping was done through KEDDO.
