State, governor honor emergency dispatchers
Mississippi is recognizing the vital role public safety dispatchers play in helping citizens receive emergency services during National Telecommunicator Week.
“Our emergency first responders and our citizens depend on the information that comes from dispatchers throughout our state,” said MEMA director Mike Womack. “The information they give out is critical to the safety of responders and the general public.”
MEMA is the state’s 24-hour warning point where rapid notification may be made – all 82 counties and the Choctaw Nation in the event of an emergency. MEMA coordinates the state response to any event that may threaten life and/or property.
Governor Haley Barbour declared April 12 – 18 National Telecommunicator Week.
