Rivercom Dispatch Facing Staff Shortage

June 23, 2014

We put a lot of trust in calling 911 when there’s an emergency. We expect someone to pick up right away and contact the proper authorities. Locally, that service comes through RiverCom 911. But, that service is only as efficient as its staff. Now, RiverCom faces staffing shortages that require creative scheduling by managers, and a whole lot of overtime for employees. KOHO News Intern Bryce Newberry reports the shortage is attributed to something you may not expect.
