Alabama NENA Communications Awards Program 2019 Nomination Package


Who are your outstanding performer(s)?  We know you have them.  Someone who, through their almost singular actions, brought a life-saving incident to a timely and safe resolution. Or, someone who has performed at peak efficiency, accurately processing large volumes of calls and dispatches throughout the year. Or, creating that database that everyone in the Center depends upon!  Whether recommended by their peers or supervisors, it’s time to provide them with the recognition they richly deserve.

Guess what?  It’s time to start putting those nomination packages together so they can be submitted to the Awards Committee by August, 29, 2019.  Get the process rolling in your agency now.  Don’t delay!  Take this opportunity to recognize and award your outstanding performers.  Not everyone can be selected, but just to be nominated is a privilege because it shows that YOU recognize their outstanding performance!

Alabama NENA Aid to Florida

The Alabama NENA Chapter recently approved $5,000 to assist our 9-1-1 peers hit by Hurricane Michael. The Calhoun County Florida PSAP was basically adopted and asked to submit a list of specific items they needed. This week members delivered generators, tents, sleeping bags, Lowe’s and Wal-Mart gift cards, ice chests, socks and lots of food, water and other drinks. The Calhoun County PSAP employees were grateful, and AL NENA is happy we were able to help.
