National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week Event


“The week of Sunday, April 13 – Saturday, April 19, 2014, is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week.  During this time, we are afforded the opportunity to honor our Nation’s public safety dispatchers and call takers and reflect on their role as the first, first responders.  They are the invisible, courageous, professional voices on the other end of radio transmissions and 911 calls for service.” –J.D. Patterson, Director
