In the last several years, public safety agencies nationwide have recognized the critical role played by dispatchers, communication operators, and radio control personnel.  Each year, the second week of April is dedicated to the men and women who serve as public safety dispatchers.  These professionals are responsible for answering 911 calls and sending the appropriate personnel to assist.  This year, National Public Safety Telecommunications Week is being celebrated April 13 – 19.
