Coweta 911 director to serve as a state regional director


Coweta County’s E-911 Director Arlene Whisenhunt has been elected to serve as one of four regional directors with the Georgia Emergency Number Association (GANENA) Board.

Whisenhunt’s recent election resulted in her assuming the role of GANENA’s Northwest Regional Director.

The National Emergency Number Association (NENA) was established to assist communities throughout the United States with their efforts to install 9-1-1 emergency telephone number systems. It assists with setting standards for 911.

 NENA promotes those efforts through cooperation and collaboration with the thousands of emergency services, communications centers throughout the United States, and with telephone industry’s trade associations, the Federal Communications Commission and various other organizations, according to GANENA.
