911 Telecommunicators: “Grace under pressure.”

The second full week of April (April 14-20, 2013) is being observed as National Public Safety Telecommunications Week. This week, we honor the thousands of men and women who respond to emergency communications, dispatch emergency professionals and equipment, and render life-saving assistance to the world’s citizens.

“The professionalism and grace under pressure demonstrated daily by 911 call takers and dispatchers is simply amazing,” said Mark Tibbert, Director of High Impact Training Solutions. “In each and every community, taking time to recognize and honor this dedicated group of individuals is important, as these are truly special people.”
