Adair proclaims Public Safety Telecommunications Week

Adair County Fiscal Court declares April 10-16, 2022 National Public Safety Telecommunications Week honoring those who connect people in need with first responders.

Whereas emergencies can occur at any time 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 the safety of our police officers and firefighters is dependent upon the quality and accuracy of information obtained from citizens who telephone the Adair County Emergency 9-1-1 Center: and

Whereas Public Safety Telecommunicators are the first and most critical contact our citizens have with emergency services; and,

Whereas Public Safety Telecommunicators are the single vital link for our police officers and firefighters by monitoring their activities by radio, providing them information and insuring their safety, and,

Whereas Public Safety Telecommunicators of Adair County Emergency 9-1-1 Center have contributed substantially to the apprehension of criminals, suppression of fires and treatment of patients: and

Whereas each dispatcher has exhibited compassion, understanding and professionalism during the performance of their job in the past year;

Therefore, Be It Resolved that the Fiscal Court of Adair County declares the week of April 10th through April 16th, 2022 to be National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week in Adair County in honor of the men and women whose diligence and professionalism keep our county, city and citizens safe.

Signed this 10 day of April, 2022 by Adair County Judge Executive Gale B. Cowan
