Pullman celebrates National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week

National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, which takes place on the second week in April of each year, brings recognition to public safety dispatchers.

These men and women help to assure rapid response by police, fire and medical personnel in the midst of emergencies.

The Pullman Police and Fire Departments rely on Whitcom, the regional dispatch center located in Pullman, for 911 and dispatching services.

“Emergency dispatchers play an invaluable role in our ability to assist community members in times of crisis,” said Pullman Police Chief Gary Jenkins. “Dispatchers have a highly difficult and incredibly important job. The men and women at Whitcom are a vital part of our public safety team. We appreciate the work that they do each and every day.”
