9-1-1 Hero’s

Today, two young boys were recognized as 911 Hero’s by Charlotte County E911  On May 24, 2014, Landon Payne age 8, called 911 regarding his grandmother who was having a medical episode and could barely speak. Landon provided information about his grandmother and while attempting to obtain more information, gave the phone to his brother Gavin, age 6, who also spoke to the 911 Operator. The boys did a great job with calling 911, remaining calm, providing the information they knew, preparing the scene by attempting to put the dogs away before medical assistance arrived. If the medical call had not been placed by Landon, the situation could have had devastating results. The boys had an opportunity to meet the operator they spoke to during the 9-1-1 call, Supervisor Sharon Brunhuber, Sheriff Bill Prummell and several members of the Sheriff’s Office Staff.  The boys were able to visit the dispatch center and see some of the tools used by 9-1-1 center personnel.  The boys were presented with certificates of appreciation and goodie bags.  A big Thank You to Landon and Gavin from Charlotte County E911.
