REMSA Health is pleased to announce the promotion of Arielle Romo to manager of its Regional Emergency Communications Center.

“I am excited for Arielle to expand her leadership role within the dispatch center,” said Shannon Popovich, JD, director of the Communications Center. “Her experience, qualifications, and dedication to the dispatch profession will allow for enhanced training programs and growth opportunities within the division.”

In her new role, Romo leads the Communications Center’s day-to-day operations, which manages approximately 250,000 calls a year.
