National Public Safety Telecommunicators week, April 9-15

In honor of it being National Public Safety Telecommunicators week we want to thank our dispatchers for the work they do every day to keep our community and police officers safe.  Our dispatchers do much more than just answer business line calls & 911;  They dispatch fire, police, ambulance, paramedics and coordinate med-flight when requested.  They assist thousands of people each year who come into the station for everything from seeking directions, requesting forms or needing police assistance.   A critical and stressful part of their job is performing Emergency Medical Dispatch when someone calls with a life threatening medical emergency such as a person choking.  We appreciate what you do, thank you!
