An efficient 911 agency is a vital part of any community and today in Bend you can see our local 911 Center up close.  Deschutes County 911 is opening up its doors to the public from 4 to 6 p.m.  Director Rob Piorier says Sheriff Larry Blanton and County Commissioner Tammy Baney will speak at the event: “We just hope to see lots of people show up and as part of the open house we are celebrating “National Telecommunicators Week” this week. A special visitor will also stop by during the open house; baby Prescott Simpson was born on November 11th and one of the 911 call takers helped with the delivery by phone. The 911 Service District dispatches for more than 10 Regional Emergency Response Agencies. Last year 911 dispatchers coordinated an average of 705 calls per day.
