|National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week|

Today marks the beginning of National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week (April 14-20). This week, we honor those who are on the other side of the phone when you call 911 and the other side of the radio when we are responding to a call. These dispatchers are able to use their skills and expertise to provide over-the-phone instructions during an emergency to those in need and provide responders with vital information prior to our arrival on scene.
Millwood FD would like to thank the dispatchers of 60 Control for their incredible work on a daily basis. We would also like to thank all the dispatchers of the other agencies we work side-by-side with. Having a stressful, under-appreciated job can't be easy, but they do it with pride and excellence every day.
