Marion County 911 Center employees said the center is on its way to becoming one of the best in the state.
Director Chris McIntire said the center receives about 35,000 phone calls a month and he believes it is one of the hardest jobs to do in the county.
McIntire and the Marion County Commission presented several certificates of promotion at July 31's meeting.
Commissioners said they are extremely proud of the employees and appreciate everything they do.
"Chris McIntire, I want to applaud him for the hard work and the great job he has done here in Marion County and really putting it together up there. He is proud of the employees, the schooling, the training. We issued several certificates today of achievement, accomplishment and raises," said Randy Elliot, Marion County Commissioner.
"Any emergency situation with your health situation, the first person you call is 911. That's the first line. They have to do their job to get the fire department, the police department, and the rescue squad to your house," said Randy Elliott, Marion County Commissioner.

Those awarded were Michael Scott McFann, Shawna Leanna Snyder, Donna Jean Heckel, Lacy Louise Morgan, Dana Marie Satterfield, Angie Renee Clutter, Joseph Phillip Masturzo, Shawn David Parker, Sabrina Regina Haught, and Lauren Elizabeth Boros.
