Sukus promoted to 911 center director
JANESVILLE--Kathy Sukus likes to tell people she was born for the job.
Not only was she born on 9/11, but she was born in 1968, the year of the first 911 call in the United States.
She has worked for more than two decades in emergency dispatching. Now, Sukus will be the head of Rock County Communications, the 46-person department that takes 911 calls from the public and uses the information to dispatch police, EMTs and firefighters to emergencies.
The county board on Thursday voted to promote Sukus to communications director. She has been working as interim director since former Director Dave Sleeter retired in July.
