In recognition of National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, Waterfront Park has lit the Big Four Bridge lights yellow to honor those whose services have never been more needed.
We celebrate as a nation and as a city the telecommunicators and dispatchers who act as a lifeline for our residents. Their calm authority, compassionate reassurance, and decisive action provide the link between people in desperate need and the life-sustaining services of our entire public safety team.
Take a moment this week to fully appreciate the tireless job they do every minute of every day of the year. Especially in days like these, that job might be grueling and endless, but let it never be thankless.
