News ImageNational Public Safety Telecommunications Week
National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week will be celebrated the week of April 12 - 19, 2015. The week honors those Telecommunicators that are the first link in the chain of emergency police, fire, and medical responses. If you have ever been the victim of a crime, involved in a collision, reported a fire or needed medical help, you have called 9-1-1 and were helped by a Telecommunicator, also known as a Public Safety Dispatcher. Agencies across the nation are honoring and thanking their 9-1-1 Dispatchers for their dedication and service to their communities. These public safety professionals are there for the public when needed most. They ensure that callers receive professional and timely assistance while quickly getting them the help they need. The appreciation week began in California in 1981, and quickly grew to national recognized event. In 1990, the United States Congress designated the second full week of each April as a time to remember the critical role that dispatchers play in keeping us and our communities safe.
