Dispatcher of the Year

Farmville Emergency Communications Dispatcher Michael Driskill has been chosen as this year’s Telecommunicator of the Year. According to Farmville Emergency Communications Director Jackie Gilbert, Driskill was nominated by his peers for going above and beyond with accuracy and his attention to detail. “Dispatcher Driskill constantly updates rosters, accessible lists, and departmental forms that are used daily in the center,” Gilbert said. “Without these accessible lists, it would delay crucial contact.” Driskill worked as a dispatcher for the Town of Farmville from 1975 to 1980. He returned in 2010 serving as a dispatcher for 15 years in all.
