press play to hear Lovetinsky describe the call she’s being recognized for handling

A local woman will be recognized as the 911 telecommunicator of the year next week at a ceremony in Des Moines. Sandy Lovetinsky has been with the Washington County Communications Center for 20 years. She’s being recognized for a call she handled last May. A woman called 911 and said her boyfriend had passed out at the wheel while driving on Highway 218 near Ainsworth. Lovetinsky instructed the woman to put the vehicle in nuetral and guide it onto the shoulder and then put in park. Nominations for telecommunicator awards are submitted by 911 supervisors each year from across the state
