9-1-1 Open House


WION is proud to be part of Ionia County 9-1-1/ Central Dispatch Open House on October 4th.

WION's microphones are on the road frequently this autumn!  Join Jim Carlyle, WION's morning host and Penny Beeman, WION's community events coordinator as they broadcast from the evening session of Ionia County  9-1-1's open house, on Tuesday October 4th!  The Open house is at the 9-1-1/Central Dispatch center at 545 Appletree Drive with public open house tour hours of 1-4PM and again from 6-8PM.

WION was recently named by Jim Valentine of Ionia County 9-1-1 as the place to turn for updates in severe or strong weather, by using WION's available FREE app for your cellphone or mobile device when a conventional radio or TV is not available:
" In the event you do not have access to radio or television (such as your place of work); our own local radio station, WION has the following free app for cell phones. This is another good way to stay connected to receive local alerts, notifications and updates."

Please join WION and consider yourselves invited to the open house at Central Dispatch/9-1-1 in Ionia on Tuesday October 4th. This is one of many stops for the WION "mobile mics" this Autumn. Get your free APP for WION in Google Play or I-tunes by searching "WION" and looking for the familiar "tower" logo!  WION is also available 24/7 on the Tune-In Radio app.

For open house hours see 9-1-1's Facebook page in Ionia County, and join WION from 6-8 PM October 4th for fun, information, and a visit with the people who help keep us all safe!
