Today we recognized Telecommunications Specialist Anson with a Stork Award, a golden stork pin and balloons for her participation in delivering a baby, while on duty.
A Stork Award is given to first responders who actively participate in the out of hospital delivery of a newborn. Telecommunications Specialist Anson provided instructions to a soon to be father on delivering his baby and helping his wife through the delivery.
With the certified training Telecommunications Specialist Anson has received, she was able to handle a difficult and challenging call that resulted in a healthy delivery. Both mom and baby are doing well and we are proud of the calm and professional care Telecommunications Specialist Anson provided.
Thank you to County of Pettis for your continued support and encouragement.
Goes in effect tomorrow
UPDATE: Alert has been cancelled as suspect has been located !

A great addition to the team!
I was pretty excited to introduce our new K9, Cezar, a couple of weeks ago, but I am even more excited to spread the intent in utilizing him in our community. SRO Todd Asbury and K9 Cezar will be assigned to the Sedalia 200 School District to assist in creating a safer environment for our students within. The team will be stationed at Smith-Cotton High School! With the recent National Police Canine Association certification, K9 Cezar is trained in explosives detection to include fi****ms and ammunition. Deployment within the school district is a great step in protecting our students from threats associated with both explosives and fi****ms. Superintendent Todd Fraley and I have worked together in making this a reality, and our memorandum of understanding has been modified to insert this phenomenal asset in said role. Again, this is a great step towards creating a safer environment for our students!

On Friday evening, exactly one week before the end of the 2023 Legislative Session the Associations received some exciting news from our lobbyist Penman Group. Senate Bill 24, a public-safety omnibus bill, passed both chambers of the Legislature and is waiting for review by the Governor.
This bill includes several items of interest to emergency communications including Reclassification as First Responders, additional NG9-1-1 funding, transfer of EMD rule-making from DHS to the 9-1-1 Service Board and more.
Now we wait to hear what the Governor decides. We are optimistic and are pleased to see that a number of legislative priorities have made it this far this year! We will keep you updated on the progress of this bill and what action the Governor may take.
To all those who attended Legislative Day in April or who have spoken with your Representatives and Senators this session, thank you for being involved! To Scott, Kaycee and Penman Group, thank you for keeping your ear to the ground and helping ensure our legislative priorities didn't get lost in the shuffle.

A special thanks to Jana Mahnken, LMT who participated in our first annual Adopt-A-Dispatcher and adopted every single dispatcher our at agency!!!
A single reminder, we couldn't do this job if it wasn't for the support of multiple agencies, and the community as a whole, so we thank you for that.

National Telecommunications Week!!! Here at Pettis County Joint Communications, our dispatchers work 24/7/365, often times missing holidays, birthdays, and other special events. They are here to support our community, guide those who need assisance during non emergency and/or emergency situations and to ensure all emergency responders go home safe. This week is to honor and show appreciation to our dispatchers for the work they do.
It's National Telecommunications Week!!! They are the rarely seen, but always heard whether it's on the other end of the radio, on the phone, or answering 911 calls and giving pre arrival life saving information. This week is for them, it's time to celebrate and honor them 🖤💛🖤
Road closure notice.
Pettis County Road and Bridge would like to inform you of the following information sent to us by the Contractors working on the Cedar Drive project:
"We wanted to make you aware that Monday, April 3, we will install construction signing and barricades for the closure of Gentry and for Cedar at HH on Tuesday, April 4, 2023. Temporary signals and temporary pavement markings will not be installed at this time or until we are ready to commence work on HH. Local traffic will be maintained to the homes at the north end of Cedar Drive.
Local traffic will access their property via Reine and Cedar Drive from the south – Cedar Drive / Gentry / Rte. HH intersection will be closed."
Please do not move the barricades or drive around the barricades. Barricades are placed for the safety of the workers and to prevent damage to the construction site and/or your vehicle.
Pettis County Joint Communications will be celebrating National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week, Sunday April 9th through Saturday April 15th. This week is set aside each year to honor the men and women of 9-1-1 who serve our community tirelessly by answering emergency calls, dispatching Law, Fire, and EMS and rendering life-saving assistance to those in need. Unlike seeing other emergency responders in the community, 9-1-1 Telecommunicators are rarely seen but always heard. They are the first person you will speak to when needing Law, Fire or EMS responders.
Have you spoken to one of our Telecommunicators? Chances are, if you needed to file a report, needed the fire department, or an ambulance then you have spoken to one of our Telecommunicators. You may even had to have instructions given to you to perform life saving measures. If this sounds like you, then this is the perfect time to celebrate that Telecommunicator.
Our Telecommunicators are a dedicated group of men and women committed to serving our community and we want to make this week special for them. Each year our Telecommunicators are presented with small tokens or gifts from our center. This year we would like to get our community (YOU) involved.
Consider "Adopting a Dispatcher" . This is a special way for the community to thank each individual for the work they do. Appreciation can be shown with hand written notes or cards, small gift cards, or gift baskets. We are excited to see how creative our community can be. Adopting a Dispatcher is ideal for individual families, work/office professionals, church groups, friend groups, or anyone else that would like to participate.
Here's how you can participate. To request a Telecommunicator, send us a message using the email listed below. In your message, please notate who you are, what organization you/your group are from (if any) and how many names you would like.
During the week of April 9th-15th, your care packages can be mailed to or dropped off at our center. If choosing drop off, please message Kelly Isaacson at [email protected] to arrange a time as we are secure facility. This is the same email you will use if interested in Adopting-a-Dispatcher.
Thank you again, and we appreciate your support we receive throughout the year.
