WARNING.... with all the rain we have received the rivers and streams are overflowing causing swift currents. The water temperatures are still very cold, and responders have already had to rescue people in kayaks. Please, do not let the warm weather this coming weekend lure into a dangerous situation where you need to be rescued too.

Montcalm County Central Dispatch will be testing tornado sirens today at 11am.  Spring has arrived.  Have a great day!

This week is National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week. It looks a little different this year. I always look forward to taking the time to get everyone in the same room for a short time to eat dinner, celebrate, share stories, laugh, catch up, and hand out awards. It does not happen very often which makes it feel like Christmas morning to me.

This year does not look the same. Our team is working hard to ensure public and responder safety. They are not able to be in a room together. They come into a small locked room, no visitors, strict cleaning schedules, they do their job, and go home. They go home to their families in locked houses, no visitors, and strict cleaning schedules. I would like to say I am their ray of sunshine, but I bet they may say something different.

Even in all of this, I can still hear chatter and the occasional laughter coming from the floor when they get a spare moment. Hearing this keeps my sanity at times. I am fortunate to work in a center that is a true team, a family, that loves what they do and cares about each other. It may not look the same this year, but the spirit is there. We will have a huge celebration, our "Christmas Morning", when we are able to....If you are lucky enough to know a dispatcher, please, take the time to thank them for all they do.

****MONTCALM CENTRAL DISPATCH IS NOT PARTICIPATING IN THE STATEWIDE TORNADO SIREN TESTING TODAY****

We feel the testing is very important, however, given the current events in our state we have several vulnerable members of our community that are already anxious and we do not want to add to that stress by setting off sirens. Some do not have access to social media or other avenues to be notified of the test. We will begin monthly testing soon.

Today is the first day of the Governor's Executive Order 2020-21 (COViD-19). Montcalm County Central Dispatch will continue our operation without change. Our duties as Emergency Communications Officers are to protect our community, officers, first responders, and ourselves. Montcalm County Central Dispatch has increased its daily cleaning regimens to surpass the guidelines laid out by the C.D.C. and have instituted intermittent cleanings during shifts. (Implemented weeks ago) The safety of our employees is just as important as the safety of our community members. We understand the risks of continuing to work, but our job is to make sure everyone feels safe knowing we are here to help 24/7

PLEASE UNDERSTAND, IN ORDER FOR US TO CONTINUE OUR OPERATIONS WE ARE NOT ABLE TO BE THE POINT OF CONTACT FOR QUESTIONS CONCERNING COUNTY OFFICES AND COURTS. We will post public numbers for your urgent issues as we receive them..

Thank you for understanding.

FORWARD IS OUR ONLY DIRECTION, TOGETHER IS THE ONLY WAY.... (Together, from our own remote locations of course)

Montcalm County Residents,

We have entered into uncharted territory thanks to the global pandemic of the Coronavirus. Now, more than ever, we need to be diligent in everything that we, at Montcalm 9-1-1 do to ensure the safety and well being of not only our residents, but our responders as well. In an effort to promote safety for everyone involved, a new line of questioning has been introduced to our call in-take process. Until further notice, we will be asking questions about the health and exposure risk of all of our 911 and business line callers where a responder could potentially have face to face contact with the public. We assure you that our added questioning is not going to slow down response times. We understand that in true emergencies, every second counts. We will, as always, strive to provide fast, efficient service to our county. We ask that you bear with us while we all get through this together as a community.

Sincerely,

Montcalm County Central Dispatch

W.H.A.L.E - We Have A Little Emergency, such a cute little acronym for such a big cause!

When caretakers and parents are involved in a serious accident and unable to speak, who tells first repsonders about the child in the car seat?

W.H.A.L.E provides emergency contact information for first responders to notify the child's family quickly.

Pick up your W.H.A.L.E kit at your local Police Department!
