Charleston Fire Department Chief Thomas Carr was honored last week by the Charleston County Consolidated Communications Board for his outstanding contributions to the establishment and implementation of the Countywide Communications Center that has enabled the majority of all emergency services in Charleston to be dispatched and coordinated from one facility. This facility is state-of-the-art and crucial to continued improvements in the delivery of fire, police, and EMS operations in our community. Hats off to Chief Carr and the entire board for their accomplishments in the development of this center!
