If you’ve ever been the victim of a crime, been in an automobile crash, reported a fire, or needed emergency medical help, you’ve called 9-1-1 and been helped by a telecommunicator.
America’s public safety telecommunicators serve our citizens daily in countless ways. The work of these “unseen first responders” is invaluable in emergency situations, and each of these dedicated men and women deserves our heartfelt appreciation.
This week is a time for a grateful community to show its appreciation and to recognize that our health, safety, and well-being are often dependent on the commitment and steadfast devotion of public safety telecommunicators.
The Greenville Police Department employs 17 telecommunicators in our Communications Center. These devoted professionals are on duty 24 hours a day to answer calls for service and coordinate responses from police, fire, and EMS to all types and levels of emergency situations.
Telecommunicators serve as the lifeline that connects the public and our first responders.
