National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week

National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week

  • Date: -

Telecommunicators Week April 8-14, 2018The Fauquier Sheriff’s Office Communications Division is celebrating National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week the second full week of April (April 8-14, 2018).  During this week, we honor the thousands of men and women who answer emergency calls, dispatch emergency professionals and equipment, and render life-saving instructions over the phone to the world’s citizens.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first 9-1-1 call made in Haleyville, AL on February 16, 1968. 9-1-1 has been the gateway between the public and emergency help, and it will continue to be there as a lifeline to help people when they need it most. Though the technology has changed and the profession has grown over the years, the desire to make a difference in people’s lives remains the same.

Please join us in recognizing the people under the headset and behind the consoles.
For more information please contact Joell Kight, Communications Manager 540-422-8643 or Joell.kight@fauquiercounty.gov
