In 2007, the Logan County Emergency Services Telephone Board secured a grant to upgrade and relocate a thirty plus year old communications room. I was fortunate to be a part of the team that designed and implemented the new communications room and equipment. In particular, the role I played, and continue to play, is the Information Technology glue that ties everything together in the room. We are all very proud of what we have accomplished, and Logan Dispatch is known state wide for creating a room that is a quiet, efficient and pleasant space in which to do a very difficult job.
A few important pieces that we put together to make this environment possible, were the room itself, including the redesign of the space, excluding any computers from actually being in the room itself, and combining the 4 (5 on position 3) computers in such a way that one keyboard and mouse control them all seamlessly with no switching or swapping of input devices.
More information with details of how we achieved all this to come soon.
