Commissioners Restructure Emergency Services Administration

January 19th, 2020

Potter County Commissioners Nancy Grupp, Paul Heimel and Barry Hayman approved administrative changes at the county’s Department of Emergency Services during their Jan. 16 business meeting. Former commissioner Doug Morley was contracted as part-time Potter County 9-1-1 Coordinator for 2020. He succeeds contractor Julie Sitkowski. Morley has been deeply involved in emergency services and 9-1-1 administration for several years. Among his responsibilities will be overseeing the build-out of the county’s new emergency communications system and deployment of next-generation 9-1-1 services; coordination between Potter County and the Tioga County 9-1-1 Dispatch Center; communications between the county and local fire and ambulance services, as well as the Pa. Emergency Management Agency; and compliance with state and federal standards and policies for operations and training. In a related move, the board named Commissioner Grupp to succeed Morley as the county’s Director of Emergency Services. Glenn Dunn will continue to serve as Emergency Management Coordinator.
