April Marks National 9-1-1 Education Month and Telecommunicators Week (April 13-19, 2014)
Every year, the second full week of April is recognized as a time to celebrate and appreciate telecommunicators across the nation. Telecommunicators are individuals who work for an emergency service provider (usually 9-1-1) and are qualified to answer incoming emergency telephone calls and provide for the appropriate emergency response. They work hard each and every day to make sure citizens get the best emergency services and they are a very important part of the community!
Governor Rick Perry has proclaimed April 13 – 19, 2014, as Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, and praised them as the “unseen first responders”.
