The Russell County E-911 Board held a special called meeting on Friday to discuss the resignation of 911 Mapping Coordinator Ronnie McGaha. McGaha is employed full time as EMT and was working eight hours a week as mapping coordinator.
A reason for the resignation was not given at the meeting.
The mapping coordinator is tasked with making sure that all buildings of residence or commercial use have a physical address which is kept updated continuously in a computer database to assist emergency personnel in locating those needing assistance.
A proposal was made to give Board Chairman Tony Wright the ability to hire a mapping coordinating expert /certified instructor for a two day assessment of the current state of the Russell County 911 mapping.
After assessment Tuesday and Thursday of this week the board will schedule another called meeting to determine a training schedule according to needs. It is suggested that three individuals should be trained to become proficient in the job, with one individual placed as head of mapping and the other two as alternates as needed. Final coordination for training and who is to be trained will be determined at the next called meeting.
