911 dispatch gets deputy director

Members of the Consolidated Communications Partnership, the board that oversees the city-county 911 center, hired Juatanne Gersos on Tuesday as the new deputy director for the joint Fort Wayne-Allen County 911 call center.

Gersos, 41, has been a city dispatcher for 18 years, both for Fort Wayne and the merged city-county call center.

She previously worked for the Indiana State Police and part time for the New Haven Police Department and Three Rivers Ambulance Authority.

“I am happy, excited and grateful for the opportunity,” Gersos said.

William Bassett, who was named the center's director in April, recommended Gersos for the job.

“She will help continue the positive movement within the agency,” Bassett said. “I look forward to working with Juatanne – she'll do good.”
