The Effingham County 911 Board met on Tuesday, August 9th.
The Board discussed the issue regarding signage in Effingham County. When the 911 system was in its early years, State Legislature allowed a county’s 911 to pay for signs in the county, so local responders would know where to go for calls. For many years, the Effingham County 911 board had signs in their budget, so any damaged or removed signs could be replaced. This, however, is no longer the case. We talked to board member, Mike Schutzbach, about the issue.
The board also approved in an unanimous vote, training classes for Effingham County telecommunicators. There are two classes, one to be held up north and one in Effingham on September 15th. We spoke to System Administrator, Jodi Moomaw, on what these training classes would cover.
The classes are put on by Illinois APCO.
