National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week April 9-15, 2017

This year, April 9–15 is a week dedicated to those who provide the first point of contact during any emergency, regardless of the situation. National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week was designated to recognize those professionals that provide emergency dispatch in municipalities throughout Canada.

Due to the extreme situations that are involved in emergency services, the skills and commitment of those manning the front lines everyday cannot be overstated. It is due to their expertise that lives are saved through the dispatching of emergency responders.

The profession of paramedicine is truly a team effort and we are very privileged to have the services of telecommunication professionals who share our dedication to patient centered care.

The Alberta College of Paramedics thanks all of the devoted public safety telecommunicators in the province for their unwavering service.
