This week is National Public Safety Telecommunications Week. Its purpose is to honor the many professionals who help provide 9-1-1 emergency assistance.
Every day, these nameless, faceless individuals make a difference between life and death by answering emergency calls.
They are the true "first" first responders who are highly trained to work around the clock to ensure safety.
Congress started the week to honor dispatchers back in 1991.
