National Public Safety Dispatcher Week April 13 – 19, 2015

CandidatesNight2014-1095
For the past several years, Public Safety Agencies nationwide have recognized the pivotal role played by telecommunicators, dispatchers, communications operators, radio control personnel, ALL those people, by whatever job title, who utilize telephones, radios, computers and technical skill to provide support for Law Enforcement, Fire Services, Emergency Medical Services and other governmental field personnel.

Each year, the second week of April is dedicated to the men and women who serve as public safety telecommunicators. In 1991, Congress proclaimed it as a nationally recognized week of recognition.

The Colusa County Sheriff’s Office and Communications Center celebrates this year’s National Telecommunicators Week – April 13 through April 19 – in honor of their dedicated dispatchers who handle hundreds of land-line and wireless 9-1-1 calls each month within Colusa County. They dispatch Sheriff’s Deputies, Colusa and Williams Police officers and coordinate with allied agencies for other law enforcement, fire services and emergency medical services response to the needs of the public in emergencies and on a routine basis.

This year the Colusa County Sheriff’s Office is recognizing their dispatchers with a mid-week barbecue. Each Dispatcher will receive small gifts of appreciation throughout the week delivered to express appreciation for all 8 dispatchers who work around the clock, all year long, to support their officers in the field and help keep the public safe.

When you dial 9-1-1 on your cellular phone in California, a Sheriff’s Office or CHP dispatcher answers that call – know where you are and stay on the line so they can help get the assistance you need!  Remember 9-1-1 is for emergencies only.
