National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week

Posted on | April 10, 2016 | No Comments

You may not know, but today marks the beginning of National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, April 10-16, 2016, honoring the call takers, dispatchers, supervisors, trainers, managers, and other essential communications staff manning 911 Centers, Fire Service Centers, County Sheriffs Offices, Emergency Medical Service stations, City Police Departments, and other dispatch facilities throughout our state and nation.

Please take a moment this week to think about the communications professionals working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide the vital link between people in need and the fire, law, and EMS personnel who respond to help them.  If you have an opportunity, thank them in some way for their diligence and devotion to duty.  They miss dinners with family, work birthdays, and holidays because the work they do is so essential to public safety.

Whether communications professionals work in a huge metropolitan 911 center or in a rural county dispatch center, they make the difference every day in the lives of the citizens and the safety of other public safety professionals in the field. When moments matter – the telecommunicator makes the most of every moment.  As President of the Missouri Chapter of APCO, I thank all of my fellow public safety communications professionals for the amazing work you do today and everyday.  Take a moment this week to give thanks to the telecommunicator beside you and accept an accolade or two for yourself.  You deserve it!

Happy National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week 2016!!
