Valdosta - A South Georgia 911 center gets national recognition for its lifesaving skills.

The Lowndes County 911 center is one of 32 nationally accredited centers in the country. Cobb is the only other county in Georgia with the distinction.

The center was recently recognized by the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials in Montreal Canada.

"There's 214 standards you have to meet and you have to show compliance with those standards and demonstrate that, so you have to put in practices and procedures to be able to demonstrate that you meet those standards," said EMA Director Nick Lacey. 

The Lowndes County 911 Center employees 32 people and answers about 440 calls each day from Echols and Lowndes County.
