This week is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, a week set aside to recognize the efforts of our nations 911 operators and dispatchers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of Sumner County 911 for their dedication and professionalism in the service to the citizens of this County. I try each year to express the level of gratitude I have for them, and each year my description is woefully inadequate.
This year is especially tough. While everyone is being told to “stay at home” to help prevent the getting and spreading of Corona Virus, our dispatchers continue to leave their families and come to work. Like an insurance policy, they are here when you need them; in good times and bad.
So to the members of Sumner County 911, whose level of dedication, professionalism, and caring for their fellow man exceeds my level of expectation…I offer a heartfelt “thank you”. It is a pleasure and honor to serve with you.
