National Telecommunicators Week 2011

April 10-16 is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week

Sheriff Bouchard salutes the OCSO's 9-1-1 telecommunicators...who answer the call and save lives every day.

The second full week in April is always National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. The OCSO proudly recognizes the dedicated men and women who stand ready to help citizens in need every day.

As we celebrate this week of recognition, it has never been more apparent that 9-1-1 operators are a critical part of public safety—both now and in the future. The OCSO dispatcher’s actions are consistently instrumental in saving lives.  Additionally, Sheriff Bouchard is proud the OCSO is the only communications center in the State of Michigan who provide EMD (Emergency Medical Dispatch) and EFD (Emergency Fire Dispatch). 

As the first person on the scene of every crime, fire, and medical emergency, the 9-1-1 dispatcher continues to be an invaluable resource and the OCSO salutes its team of professionals who are so committed to excellence.

They should take pride in a job well done.
