With the current problem in our nation surrounding the COVID situation we will not be able to do that in the normal way. But we are determined to honor his memory and support his family and friends in this difficult time, that has been made more difficult due to the social limitations imposed on them.
Here is where we need your help We, along with many other fire districts plan to have a fire truck parade to honor his memory and allow some of our staff to speak to the family over our PA system on the trucks.

Overview Montgomery County created its first communications center in and had an initial staff of 6 employees. CALLING should be used in any situation that requires immediate assistance from the police, the fire department, or an ambulance. Never say "nine eleven," since there is no 11 on the telephone keypad.
Always say "nine one one.The present Communications Center became operational in the spring of It represented a significant improvement in capabilities over its predecessor. Where the former office a single, small room in the basement of the courthouse was capable of receiving basic calls, the only information available to the telecommunicators answering the calls was the phone exchange where the call originated. Telecommunicators had to rely on the caller to give them address and phone number information, as well as the kind of help they required, before help could be sent.
Then all of that information was hand recorded with pen and paper. CAD provided a computerized way of entering and keeping track of the progress of a call, replacing the pen and paper of old. Although they came in on a dedicated phone line, no location or phone number information was provided for the telecommunicator answering the call.
Unfortunately, callers using wireless are frequently not able to tell the telecommunicator where they are, simply because they are unfamiliar with the area they are in when they place the call. This is particularly true of travelers just passing through the county.
Since more and more calls are being placed from mobile phones, such as when people witness a traffic accident or suffer a breakdown on the highway, callers not knowing where they are is a huge problem. Without location information, telecommunicators have no way of knowing where to send help.
The Federal Communications Commission FCC has addressed that problem by mandating that mobile phone companies start providing phone number and location information in two phases.
Wireless E Phase I provides the caller's mobile phone number to the telecommunicator answering the call, but still does not provide any location information. Wireless E Phase II still provides the caller's phone number, but adds a caller's location based upon latitude and longitude, as well. The changes in wireless service represent just one example of how technology continually evolves. As computer capabilities improve, software programmers are able to develop applications that further improve telecommunicators' ability to provide quicker, more accurate responses to people's calls for help.
Our goal is to provide the best service we possibly can to the people who call us for help, and taking advantage of technological advances as often as we can is one way we can move closer to that goal.Clarksville Online takes you beyond the ordinary in local news and gives the Extras: political coverage, opinion pieces and editorial work, local and regional arts and theater, municipal and county news and events, and more.
