SOUTH BEND — On Nov. 17, Chief Deputy Stephanie Fritts of the Pacific County Sheriff’s Office received a certificate of appreciation from acting Washington State E911 Coordinator Stacy McClain during a short ceremony.
Fritts is E911 director as well as the emergency management coordinator for Pacific County. The certificate of appreciation was presented to Fritts to honor her many years of dedicated work as a representative of the Washington State Association of west side counties.
A press release noted that as a representative, Fritts was actively involved in advising and assisting to help coordinate and facilitate the operation of E911 throughout the state by participating in collective efforts to help set uniform national and state standards for enhanced 911 services with agencies.
