Communications Division staff are devoted to assessing, coordinating and sending information to the responding public safety professionals. The communications staff dispatches for these agencies:
Each Leavenworth County Dispatcher is trained and certified in the use of Emergency Medical Dispatch (EMD) protocols, Law Enforcement Dispatch (LED) protocols and Fire Service Dispatch (FSD) protocols. These certifications mean that when a citizen calls 9-1-1 the dispatcher serves as the first responder on the scene. Dispatchers are certified to provide medical instructions to control bleeding, perform CPR and administer the Heimlich Maneuver, just to name a few. A dispatcher will also provide safety instructions to each caller to mitigate risk and preserve life during a fire or an in progress crime event.
Dispatchers Save Seconds, Seconds Save Lives
