OSWEGO COUNTY COMMENDS McGINLEY - The Oswego County Legislature's Public Safety Committee presented a certificate of commendation to Cassie McGinley, a telecommunicator with the Oswego County E-911 Department. McGinley was recently named the EMS Communication Specialist of the Year in the five-county region of Cayuga, Cortland, Oswego, Onondaga and Tompkins counties. The award is presented to a dispatcher or call-taker in the region who shows dedication, responsibility, professional behavior, special skills or insight to pre-hospital communications. In a specific incident last year, McGinley answered a call for assistance and, following emergency dispatch protocol, enabled the caller to successfully perform CPR and save the life of another. Her quick response and demonstration of calm caring is a remarkable example to others. Pictured from left are legislators James Karasek, District 22; Milferd Potter, District 2; Committee Chairwoman Linda Lockwood, District 11; McGinley; Oswego County E-911 Director Michael Allen; Committee Vice Chairwoman Margaret Kastler, District 1; Richard Kline, District 12; and Frank Castiglia, Jr., District 25.
