CAPCOG, CAECD honors Telecommunicators Week

Tuesday, April 07, 2015

The Capital Area Council of Governments Executive Committee and Emergency Communication District Board of Managers have recognized the dedication of the more than 600 public safety telecommunicators in the 10-county region.

National Telecommunications Week is April 12-18, and telecommunicators who work throughout the Capital Area are the “backbone of the 9-1-1 system” and provide an “unending service” to the region, stated the board and committee in a resolution. Telecommunicators are not only the link for residents facing emergencies to emergency response agencies, they save lives each and every day.

CAPCOG encouraged all local governments to honor their telecommunicators by also signing proclamations or resolutions and celebrate the week with appropriate activities and ceremonies.

The Capital Area Emergency Communications District will recognize the great job telecommunicators do by sponsoring a region-wide, bowling and social event on April 18.
