Kathleen Utley

In September of 2010, Kathleen began her career as the Director of Marketing at Xybix. Kathleen has known the owners of Xybix, the Carson family since she was about twelve years old. As an active member of the Winter Park Volunteer Ski Patrol (of which both Barry and Ken Carson are also members), when the Marketing position opened at Xybix, it was a match made in “powder heaven”. A Colorado native, Kathleen received her Bachelor’s Degree from the College of St Benedict/St John's University in St. Joseph, MN. While attending, she studied Graphic Design and Advertising. After moving back to Denver, in 2009, Kathleen received her MBA in Marketing from Regis University. I love working for Xybix, to me, it’s like working for family. I love getting to meet our customers and talk about our furniture at tradeshows and events.

ConsoleCleaningProductsWith so many cleaning products available for cleaning your dispatch workstation and consoles, a question we are commonly asked is "what cleaning product(s) will kill the most germs and help to prevent sickness in our 911 Comm Center?"

This can be a rather loaded question and can answer it in a few different ways. Assuming that most, if not all of you, want to clean your shared workstation to prevent against the common cold, flu, and various other bacteria and viruses that can make you sick. I’ll be discussing cleaners that are disinfectants/sanitizers. I find it best to mention the United States Environmental Protection Agency or EPA’s website as a good reference. Here you can find many products that have been evaluated for efficacy to make sure the public health label claims are accurate. (As with all cleaning products, be sure to read the label for proper usage and safety instructions.) I in no way promote these products and the purpose of this blog post was to explore what options are available for use in cleaning a your workstation and the pro’s and con’s of each.
