Telecommunicators or dispatchers are truly the unsung heroes of our nation. Telecommunicators may be behind the scenes but they are the calm to the crazy of our world.
They are one of the first to talk to victims or those injured, they keep first responders like police or fire informed, all while handling multiple calls at one time with calm in their voice.
Honestly, I could not do it! I applaud all of the 9-1-1 dispatchers for their amazing work because they are the GLUE that holds emergencies together.
You can applaud them, too!

-Say “thank you”

Here are some more great tips to show telecommunicators some love and appreciation! (This post is more than just for law enforcement).
With my husband being in law enforcement, it is important to me that we show appreciation for the dispatchers at his department. They effectively articulate calls to my husband, they listen and hear when no one else can. I support their job and how they work to keep my husband safe at his job, as well.
They walk the Thin GOLD Line and we support them!!
