Do you ever wonder who the person is behind our emergency calls to 911? All we know about them is their voice, which is why National Public Safety Telecommunications Week (NPSTW), observed every second week in April, has been set aside to recognize and celebrate the work of telecommunicators helping to save millions of lives every day. If not for the telecommunicators flawlessly doing their jobs, billions of lives would have been lost due to untimely assistance. So, throughout this week, we honor and thank those invisible telecommunicators who have continued to serve in this demanding profession.
Every year, the second whole week of April is dedicated to the men and women who serve as public safety Telecommunicators in the United States. In 1991, Congress proclaimed it a national week of recognition.
Between the Thin Blue Line and the Thin Red Line, Lies the Thinnest Gold Line. This Gold Line represents those who Rarely are Seen but are Mostly Heard.
The Calm Voice in the Dark Night
The Golden Glue that holds it All together
