The CENCOM policy board won't have to take time to get to know its new director — it has promoted from within.

Deputy Director Richard Kirton, who has worked at CENCOM since 1998 at the 911 service, was officially promoted on June 30. He replaced Ron McAffee.

While he's excited about being named director, he knows some challenges lie ahead.

"Given the budget situation of the county, city and fire agencies, we have to maintain the same level of customer service they expect, and do it as cost efficiently as possible," Kirton said.
