The team is commended for the precise and ongoing communication between both emergencies where road closures and emergency helicopters were deployed. The 911 dispatchers are applauded for continuing to answer and dispatch other 911 calls while maintaining clear communication during both accidents.

The BOCC and Employee Recognition Committee congratulate the team on their swift, flawless and exemplary cooperation during the incidents.
