The Deschutes County 911 just moved into a new building and it has a new Director at the helm. Rob Poirier previously headed up the Santiam Canyon 911 in Stayton, east of Salem. He's looking forward to his new job.

“You know my main goal is just to take a great 911 Center and continue to serve the public. Some of the things we’d like to expand a little bit to provide some regional training for not only telecommunications but other public safety. We have a great training facility at the new center.” Rob Poirier was the guest on the KBND Morning News program  "Your Town" Wednesday morning.
