CENCOM Gearing Up for Busy Apple n' Pork Festival

The Clinton community sees an exponential increase each year in traffic and population during the Apple n' Pork Festival. Along with this in turn comes the need for medical and police attention.

 

DeWitt County CENCOM Coordinator Tony Harris notes they will have two dispatchers working with a third on standby to accommodate for an influx of calls if need be. He estimates they receive over 1,000 a day.

 

 

When asked about memorable instances over the years, Harris commented about a time when they received an influx of medical calls during the same time.

 

 

Harris reminds anyone on the museum grounds requiring assistance to stop by the CENCOM mobile command center or call 9-1-1.
