The National Emergency Number Association recently certified four Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Communications Operators. Laura Towner, Heather Hughes, Elizabeth Ayer, and Emily Huntington received their certification after passing the “Emergency Number Professional (ENP)” examination. The rigorous examination covers every aspect of telephony and 9-1-1 call routing.
Certification signifies a broad-based competency in emergency communications. All four emergency communications operators demonstrated a mastery of the comprehensive knowledge base required for emergency number program management. They also help raise industry standards and increase the respect and prestige of those involved in 9-1-1.
“This certification is another example of the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office overall level of professionalism,” said Diane Webber, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Communications Director. Ms. Webber received her certification eight years ago and stated that these certifications are a significant accomplishment for both the individuals and the Sheriff’s Office.
