DIRECTORS COMMENTS- National Public Safety Telecommunication’s Week

Our dispatchers in the 911 center, Sheriff’s office and OHP are among the toughest folks in Public Safety. Most of the time you see stories about firefighters, police officers, troopers, etc. but behind the scenes are responders that you rarely hear about. These are the folks that take your 911 call, dispatch the call, wait for us to arrive on scene, and hope everything will be ok, all the while hearing the screaming, the panic, the cries for help, and they have to hold it together while emergency services responders arrive on scene. Personally, it takes a VERY SPECIAL person to do this and you have to have nerves of steel, a lot of times, just because.

Dispatchers have the same issues as responders sometimes after an event that eats into your emotions and that has to be dealt with as it is with responders. Sometimes a little thank you and praise over the radio is helpful to bring that stress back down. Dispatchers are tough people, doing a tough job, and they get little recognition. They aren’t looking for it either so if you see or know someone that is a dispatcher, tell them THANK YOU, we appreciate what you do. DISPATCH is the HUB of Operations every single day and always know, all of us especially in emergency services appreciate what all of you do.
