Lincoln, April 8, 2019 – On Monday, April 8, Representatives from the
Nebraska Public Service Commission (PSC), public safety agencies
and Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) joined Governor Pete
Ricketts for the signing of a proclamation recognizing our state’s
public safety telecommunicators /dispatchers.

Celebrated April 14-20, 2019, National Public Safety
Telecommunicators week was established in 1981, as a time to
celebrate and thank those who dedicate their lives to serving the
public through their devotion to our citizens and first responders.

“The commitment of our public safety telecommunicators/
dispatchers has never been more evident than during the recent
extreme weather experienced in our state," said Commission
Chair Mary Ridder. “This proclamation is just a small way of
saying thank you for the life-saving role they play not only during
disasters, but every day.”

Often referred to as unsung heroes, always heard, but rarely seen,
public safety telecommunicators/ dispatchers are the initial point of
contact for both the public and first responders during an emergency.

Commissioner Ridder said, “While they don’t seek the spotlight, these
devoted public servants deserve to be recognized. We encourage you
to join us in honoring them.”###
