A Deep and Painful Loss in the NENA / 9-1-1 family with the passing of our friend and colleague Bonnie Hueg


Bonnie began her career in Public Safety Communications at the Plainfield Police Department as a dispatcher, where she eventually served a Communications Manager and as the city 9-1-1 Coordinator.  In 1992 Bonnie progressed in her career, taking a position with the Office of Emergency Telecommunications Services, which was then part of the New Jersey State Police.

Bonnie became a familiar face around the state’s PSAP community.  It seemed everyone knew her and she knew everyone.  Her contributions to 9-1-1 training and PSAP compliance produced confidence in and advanced professionalism of the state’s 9-1-1 system.

As one of the charter members of New Jersey NENA, Bonnie served as chapter president, first and second vice-president, treasurer and chapter secretary.  She was involved in the planning of the very first NJ-NENA conference in Woodbridge, NJ and served as the conference chair for many years, setting the foundation of successful state conferences that we enjoy today.

It is not an exaggeration to say Bonnie has been an invaluable member of the NJ-NENA family.  The majority of past and present executive board members were recruited by or encouraged to join by Bonnie.  The organization would not be as successful as it is, had it not been for her.  She truly left her mark and she will be sorely missed.

Bonnie had been battling cancer and unfortunately lost her fight.  May she rest in peace.
