Scott Emergency Communications Center (SECC) is pleased to announce that the 911 center has received American Professional Communications Officials (APCO 911) Iowa’s Chapter “Team of the Year” award. SECC was nominated for team of the year for the teamwork portrayed during the September 1, 2012 airplane crash at the Quad Cities Air Show. APCO judged nominations received throughout the State on several criteria items. The items which SECC was chosen from included: “Commendable handling and control during an emergency situation” and “A willingness to participate as team players”.
Brian Hitchcock, Director of SECC, stated that it is a great pleasure to see so many employees experience a challenging 911 consolidation and form to be strong team members allowing SECC and Medic EMS Dispatchers to respond to serious events with high call load levels. To see the team in action, handling all of the 911 calls and radio traffic from the jet crash was phenomenal. They acted as a well coordinated team. The team performed very well especially considering that not only did they handle the jet crash, they also had to keep up with all of the other 911 and radio traffic that was taking place in the County.
