For the Star Journal
A long time member of the Oneida County public safety team has been recognized for her work. Sara Geiszler has been selected as Wisconsin 2016 Telecommunicator of the Year.
“Geiszler exemplifies what this award is all about,” said Kenneth Kortenhof, Oneida County Emergency Management Director. “She never forgets her purpose and serves as a role model of individual commitment, service and professionalism.”
Geiszler has more than 22 years of experience in public safety with more than 17 of those years being in a dispatch capacity. Geiszler has worked for the Oneida County Communications Center for just over two years. In 2015, she was promoted to Telecommunication’s Sergeant and also oversees the Communications Training Officer Program.
“Telecommunicators work hard behind the scenes and all too often their contributions go unnoticed,” said Grady Hartman, Oneida County Sheriff. “We have an excellent dispatch team in Oneida County and we are very pleased that Sara Geiszler has been named the best of the best for the entire state.”
The award is given by theWisconsin Public Safety Communications (WIPSCOM), a cooperative of the Wisconsin Chapters of the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials International (APCO) and the National Emergency Number Association (NENA).
