The Lake Emergency Medical Services Communications Center has earned Accreditation as an Emergency Fire Dispatch Center of Excellence. Lake EMS is only the 23rd Emergency Fire Dispatch center to be awarded this highest distinction by the National/International Academies of Emergency Dispatch.
The accreditation required a year-long effort of all Communications Center staff with the resulting designation benefitting the entire County. In addition to requiring proper system oversight, fire administration control and quality improvement programs, Accreditation demands careful Fire Priority Dispatch System (FPDS) compliance and certification of all emergency call-takers and fire dispatchers.
