In recognition of National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week (NPSTW), April 10 – 16, communities and 9-1-1 centers will honor those who help save lives in times of personal or national crisis.

NPSTW gives communities the opportunity to thank 9-1-1 call-takers, dispatchers and technicians who maintain radio and emergency phone systems, communications staff trainers, supervisors and managers of communications centers, and other telecommunications staff across the country who work hard every day serving the public.

The Association of Public-Safety Officials (APCO) International established a website ( dedicated to this week of recognition. The site includes a blog.

"I commend every member of the provincial communications centers (PCCs) across this province for their important contribution to the Ontario Provincial Police and public safety,” said J.V.N. (Vince) Hawkes, commissioner, Ontario Provincial Police, in statement. “The complexities involved in the work these members perform are highly valued in this organization. The professionalism demonstrated by these employees 24 hours a day, seven days a week, ensures that both police officers and the public receive our best efforts to keep everyone safe in this province."
