McKenzie Batey

Dickson County Emergency Communications E911, TN

Nominated by Paul McCallister

A call concerning a possible suicidal subject came into the center in which the subject was a former deputy from a neighboring county. When the neighboring county resident called in the concern, McKenzie and her co-worker Bryan Woodard worked diligently to find the former deputy by pinging his cell phone. Bryan and McKenzie led our deputies to the area, and they found him just after he had passed out from carbon monoxide poisoning in his vehicle. The former deputy survived and is on the road to recovery thanks to Bryan and McKenzie. These two telecommunicators deserve to be called heroes! Thank you.
