The Livingston/Park County 911 Center seeks to provide the most effective emergency communications possible. To attain this goal, the Department must attract qualified employees, provide effective and relevant training, establish professional standards and provide sufficient pay and incentives to retain these people.
This Agency will carry out all tasks with an eye towards the future. We will strive to make innovation, cost effectiveness and co-operation our trade marks.
The Communications Center is often the first division that the public comes in contact with when dealing with Public Safety. This division is responsible for, among other duties, handling the initial complaints and requests for assistance from the general public. Efficiency, alertness, speed and intelligence are requisites along with a great deal of common sense and compassion to be a Communications Officer.
The Livingston Police Department, Park County Sheriff's Office, Search and Rescue, Montana Highway Patrol, Park County Rural Fire Departments, Livingston Fire and Ambulance Department, Paradise Valley Ambulance, Fish and Game, Livestock Inspector, City and County Road Departments, Wrecker Services and Forest Service depend on our Communication.
The Public Safety Communication Officers of the 911 Center are:
|Peggy Glass||911 Director|
|Kimberly Villa||Shift Supervisor|
|Heather Hopkin||Shift Supervisor|
|Kathryn Edmiston||Communication Officer|
|Sara Gillen||Communication Officer|
|Judy Story||Communication Officer|
|Makaya Hutchings||Communication Officer|
|Peggy Jacobsen||Records Clerk|
The 911 Communications Department is a City Entity with the budget supported equally by the City and the County. The Department is governed by a 911 Advisory Communications Board, which meets monthly on the third Thursday of the month. The 911 Communications Advisory Board then makes a recommendation to the City and the County for final decisions.
