At the County Commissioner’s Meeting that was held on Monday, June 4, 2012, the Commissioners named individuals to the Board for Pushmataha County’s 911 System.
The Commissioners double appointed the Ambulance Board to take the rains of the 911 Board. They feel that this was a great fit since each of the board members already knows the county well and no training was needed for the board members.
“It was a really good fit,” said Antlers Fire Chief Randy Janoe. “They all know their areas, as well as the county, and know how to operate a board successfully.”
The first meeting for the new 911 board will take place on Tuesday, June 12, 2012 at Clayton City Hall. These meetings are open to the public and will piggy back the Ambulance Board Meetings.
Over the next month or so, the board will be gearing up and hiring contractors to begin the mapping process of the 911 system and giving all roads and houses 911 acceptable addresses and street names. The addresses for individuals in the country (not living inside city limits for any town) will change.
The 911 Board Members are: President Kelly Janoe (Antlers Rep); vice-president Steve Crawford (Rattan/Sobol Rep); Kenenth Blan (Rural West Rep); Teresa West (Nashoba Area Rep) and Jennifer Hahn (Clayton Area Rep).
