Loudoun County Fire and Rescue (LCFR) is proud to announce that Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin has appointed Patty Turner, LCFR’s Emergency Communications Center (ECC) Manager, to the Virginia E 9-1-1 Services Board.

Virginia’s E 911 Services Board consists of 16 members, with 13 that are appointed by the Governor. Some of its powers and duties include supporting and assisting agencies in the provision of 911 operations and services; planning, promoting, and assisting in the statewide development, deployment, and maintenance of an emergency services IP network; and consulting and coordinating with 911 centers and other various E-911 stakeholders.    

Ms. Turner was sworn in last Thursday by Gary Clemens, Loudoun County’s Clerk of the Circuit Court, for her five-year term. “It is a great honor to have been selected by Governor Glenn Youngkin to serve on the E-911 Services Board and to continue my passion for the 911 Industry at the State level,” Turner said of her appointment.

Ms. Turner began her career in public safety communications in 1989 in Jefferson County, WV and worked for Leesburg Police Department before joining LCFR in 1999. Since joining LCFR, Patty has worked her way up from 911 dispatcher to dispatch supervisor and was promoted to ECC Manager in 2003. Ms. Turner holds many certifications related to emergency communications such as APCO’s Certified Public-Safety Executive, APCO Registered Public-Safety Leader, NENA Communications Manager Certification Program and Fitch & Associates Communications Center Manager.
