Alexis Powell, a dispatcher with the Huron Township Department of Public Safety, was commended Monday for her swift reaction during a Sept. 9 911 call regarding a man who said he was going to take his life.

In the letter, Public Safety Director Everette Robbins noted how calm and compassionate Powell sounded during the 911 call.

He said that keeping composure is an essential part of a dispatcher’s job, and that Powell did exactly that during the call.

Robbins also said that Powell did a great job relaying important information to responding police units, which prompted a thank you from the Sumpter Township Police Department, who also responded the callers location.
