The second week in April is set aside to recognize the thousands of Telecommunicators, commonly referred to as dispatchers, for contributions to their communities.

The dispatchers of the Clarksville/Montgomery 9-1-1 center are on the job 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They are the unsung heroes who are the first point of contact for people who need emergency services.

When an emergency arises and help is needed the 9-1-1 dispatchers are there to provide a voice of reason and comfort as well as getting the emergency responders on their way to help in a person’s time of need. They work in a world where it’s like being on a roller coaster every day, communicating and helping people during their darkest or happiest moments.

Locally and throughout our nation, during disasters in the community or when someone is experiencing a personal crisis, 9-1-1 dispatchers are there to meet the challenge as the first line of contact to get emergency responders on their way. The 9-1-1 Dispatchers provide critical services to Clarksville-Montgomery County.

In 2017, the Clarksville-Montgomery County Dispatchers processed over 282,000 calls. 9-1-1 Dispatchers are never seen, but are always there on the other end of the phone line to provide a helping hand. Take time this week to thank them and recognize them for their dedication and hard work.
