MPUC Appoints New Enhanced 911 Director
AUGUSTA, Maine – The Maine Public Utilities Commission today announced that Maria Jacques would become the new Director of the Emergency Services Communications Bureau, which oversees Enhanced 911 services in Maine.
“We are extremely pleased that Ms. Jacques is taking on this vital duty,” said Sharon M. Reishus, Chairman of the MPUC. Ms. Jacques was chosen after a national search for a replacement for the previous Director, Al Gervenack, who retired last month.
”Ms. Jacques has 12 years’ experience with Maine’s Enhanced 911 system and she is deeply knowledgeable about Maine’s emergency services network,” Chairman Reishus said. “She has demonstrated her commitment to this public service and is uniquely qualified to guide the system through its next stages.”
Ms. Jacques previously served as the Bureau’s Enhanced 911 Database Manager and in other Bureau positions, beginning in 1996. Before that she held posts in the Maine Department of Public Safety and the Alaska Department of Public Safety.
The Maine Public Utilities Commission is committed to ensuring that consumers have access to safe and reliable service for public utilities and that the rates for these utilities are just and reasonable. M PUC programs include Maine Enhanced 911 Service, Dig Safe, and Efficiency Maine.
