The second week of April is a time to celebrate and thank telecommunications professionals who dedicate their lives to serving the public. Often called the thin gold line, 911 dispatchers are true heroes behind the scenes.
"This week-long event, initially set up in 1981 by Patricia Anderson of the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office in California, is a time to celebrate and thank those who dedicate their lives to serving the public. It is a week that should be set aside so everyone can be made aware of their hard work and dedication." - Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International
Bio-One would like to say "Thank You" and join the many police departments and fire stations whom are recognizing 911 dispatchers across the U.S.
It is National Telecommunications Week. Our dispatchers receive the first calls, sends assistance & provide the lifeline for the public and our police officers. They are always there to answer the calls for help. We want to recognize & applaud all their efforts today & everyday. pic.twitter.com/PyJfv9TZq8— Maryland Heights PD (@MHPolice) April 12, 2021
