Livingston County dispatchers recognized with annual awards

The work of Livingston County’s 911 dispatchers was recently recognized.


Each year, Congress designates the second week of April as National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week to honor the estimated 300,000 men and women that are a part of the country’s 911 system.

This year’s theme was “Super Heroes” with several events planned locally to recognize Livingston County’s approximately 40 dispatchers including various dress up days including dress like your favorite food and PJ Day.


The observation culminated on April 15 with a ceremony where awards were presented.

Dispatcher Leslie Stidham previously received a Heart Saver award from the University Of Michigan and was also recognized for it by Livingston County 911. The award is given for those who are instrumental in helping a cardiac arrest patient recover and make it out of the hospital.

The Employee of the Year was Shift Leader Anne Gillhouse, who was recognized as someone who “consistently rises to the occasion to lead the team during critical incidents” and is “exceptional at ensuring the dispatchers remain organized in the chaos and responsible for their duties.”
