During last August’s devastating flash flooding on Lower Lake Road and Lodi Point State Park, Seneca County 911 dispatcher Michele Leonard was on duty to handle the initial calls for help.
Her calm professionalism and quick and informed decision making during that event led to her being chosen by Emergency Management Director Melissa Taylor as the county’s 2018 Dispatcher of the Year.
Taylor and 911 Operations Manager Brandi Godley presented Leonard with the plaque at the May 14 meeting of the Seneca County Board of Supervisors.
Leonard is a supervisor in the 911 Center and has worked for the county 911 program for the past 15 years.
