RCECD 9-1-1 Administration and Training Center to be Named After John D. Hood

Rutherford County Emergency Communications District’s (RCECD) 9-1-1 Administration and Training Center will be displaying a new name on Friday, September 11. The center is being named for long-time board member and treasurer John D. Hood.

During a small virtual ceremony just before the 9-1-1 Board meeting, the building will be dedicated in Hood’s honor, and the new signage will be unveiled as, the “John D. Hood 9-1-1 Administration and Training Center.”

“We could not think of anyone more deserving of this honor,” said RCECD Director Steve Smith. “Mr. Hood has been such an incredible figure representing the Rutherford County community over the years, and he has been a tremendous asset to our communications team.”

Hood has been board member and treasurer since the group’s inception in 1986. He is the longest-standing member in the board’s history.

Rutherford County Mayor Bill Ketron commented, “You cannot be from Rutherford County without hearing the name ‘John Hood’ at least once. He has served this community well in many different ways. I was proud to nominate John for this honor for his years of service to the 9-1-1 Board. His name and his impact will be remembered for years to come.”
