“Each year, the second week in April is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. This year, the weeklong commemoration extends from April 12 to 18 and falls in the second month of an ongoing global pandemic.
Public safety telecommunicators are the men and women who respond to emergency calls, dispatch emergency professionals and equipment, and render life-saving assistance to residents.
Throughout this crisis, the men and women of the Camden County Communications Center have been intrepid in their response, continuing to arrive to work each day prepared to serve our residents. Our 911 infrastructure cannot operate if they are not here. As the coronavirus outbreak spread, demanding changes in how our first responders tackled incidents and emergency calls, they approached the situation with poise and determination to keep Camden County safe however they could.
This National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week we are proud to have these incredible public servants in our community, and we will forever be thankful for the sacrifices they have made and the actions they have taken to keep the public and our first responders safe.”
