GodwinALACHUA COUNTY, FL - Alachua County Fire Rescue is pleased to report that the locally created “9-1-1 Center Supervisor’s Quick Reference Guide” will be posted on the Department of Homeland Security’s Interoperable Communications Technical Assistance Program Public Safety Tools resource web page, where other nationally recognized resources are available. The guide concept was created by Alachua County E911 Coordinator Keith Godwin.

The Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Emergency Communications contacted Godwin about the guide. It is an all in one resource to provide supervisors in a 9-1-1 center with short, to the point information on a myriad of subjects including but not limited to GPS formats, physical security, time synchronization, routing and transferring of 9-1-1 calls, and radio communications.

Mr. Randy Kerr, an employee of the Office of Emergency Communications, and a former Alachua County Sheriff’s Office 911 Center Manager, was assigned as the project lead working with Mr. Godwin. 

For more information, contact Keith Godwin at 352-338-7361.
