Honor County Telecommunicators April 14 Through 20

Every year, 911 calltakers and dispatchers around the country are honored during National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week—a week-long recognition of their commitment to public safety.

From April 14 through 20, we pay tribute to the vital work these civilian men and women perform, as well as their unending spirit to serve our community. Baltimore County Emergency Telecommunicators are no different. These unsung heroes are the men and women working behind the scenes, taking your calls and working with Emergency Medical Services, Fire and Police units to send the right help to the right location. As such, telecommunicators are called the “first of the first responders.”
