As another National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week comes to a close, we wish to take the opportunity to highlight the events and service of our 911 Communications professionals:
COUNTY ISSUES OFFICIAL PROCLAMATION FOR NPSTW
To kick off the week, our Communications staff were presented with an official Proclamation from the Board of Supervisors by Chairman Robert Henke, declaring April 14th through April 20th to be National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week in Washington County, in honor of the men and women whose diligence and professionalism help to keep our county, public safety field personnel, citizens and visitors safe.
Our annual Department Awards, Years of Service Awards and Meritorious Service Awards were issued and our team members were recognized as noted:
YEARS OF SERVICE AWARDS
MERITORIOUS SERVICE AWARDS
The annual awardees were selected based upon their performance during the past year and voted on by the Communications Center staff.
Throughout the week the 911 Communications Center team had a number of our elected officials and partner agencies who expressed their support for the work they do and/or stopped by for a visit to see what it's like behind the scenes and 'under the headset.' We are very appreciative of the support for our team and the interest in what they do to help those in need and support our public safety partners in the field.
We wish to thank all of our Communications staff for their dedication and hard work throughout the last year. Coordinating emergencies and communications in Public Safety services is a task like few others and takes a dedicated team to be the lifeline for our residents, visitors, and public safety field partners we serve proudly.
