National Telecommunicators Week

Hays County Commissioners Court adopted a proclamation on April 13 recognizing April 11-17, 2021, as National Telecommunicators Week. Sheriff Gary Cutler thanked the Court for recognizing the challenging work of the County’s 911 and dispatch staff.
Below is the Proclamation:
PROCLAMATION RECOGNIZING APRIL 11-17, 2021 AS
NATIONAL TELECOMMUNICATORS WEEK
WHEREAS, emergencies can occur at anytime that require police, fire or emergency medical
services; and
WHEREAS, when an emergency occurs, the prompt response of police officers, firefighters and
paramedics is critical to the protection of life and preservation of property; and
WHEREAS, Public Safety Dispatchers are the first contact our residents have with emergency
services. They provide steady guidance and support in a caller’s most frantic and panicked moments; and
WHEREAS, Public Safety Dispatchers are the a vital link for our police officers and firefighters
by monitoring their activities, providing them information and insuring their safety; and
WHEREAS, Public Safety Dispatchers are more than a calm and reassuring voice at the other end
of the phone, they are the “unseen first responders.” They are knowledgeable and highly trained individuals
who work closely with other police, fire, and medical personnel; and
WHEREAS, Public Safety Dispatchers of Hays County have contributed substantially to the
apprehension of criminals, suppression of fires and treatment of patients; and
WHEREAS, each dispatcher has exhibited compassion, understanding, dedication and
professionalism during the performance of their job in the past year; and
WHEREAS, Public Safety Dispatchers serve the public in countless ways without recognition by
the beneficiaries of their services.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Hays County Commissioners Court does
hereby proclaim April 11-17, 2021 as
National Telecommunicators Week
ADOPTED THIS THE 13th DAY OF APRIL 2021
