The Spirit of 9-1-1, an unbreakable bond

It has been one heck of a month in public safety!  In the midst of National Telecommunicators Week, we witnessed hard-working professionals, put to the test. From the bombings in Boston to the fertilizer plant explosion and huge loss within a small town in Texas, mass devastation and loss of lives have been weighing heavily on our minds.  Sadly, we lost some of our own. Our hearts go out to those in the affected areas and to the departments who lost responders.

We are truly thankful for those FIRST first responders – call-takers and dispatchers who dealt with and continue to manage the incidents.

While major crises captured the attention of our nation, Telecommunicators across the country continued to work 24/7 to help save lives and property.  It takes a special team to work in this industry! Comm centers are marked by a sense of determined solidarity that extends far beyond words.  A special tie binds these people together. They are a network of caring individuals who have our backs! When Joe Public calls – they draw on a unique skill set that provides for the distraught while multitasking toward a response.

Advanced technologies and subsequent public expectations mean that Telecommunicators must remain flexible enough to accommodate new processes while maintaining a multitude of responsibilities. As an instructor, I shared insights from the Deaf community and explained TTY equipment for the Deaf. What most impressed me was how eager the students – teams of call-takers, dispatchers, public safety telecommunicators – were to learn new skills and acquire new tools that would help them save lives!

Their dedication to each other and that genuine desire to provide high quality service to ALL populations to help ALL citizens is what won my heart!

My journey through a 9-1-1 career began 23 years ago. Throughout that time, I’ve been privileged to work side by side with the people of 9-1-1!  I like to talk about it! Wherever I go, whenever I have the opportunity, I proudly say that I work with 9-1-1 professionals.  I tell them how amazing the people who sit-in-the-seats really are!  I tell them about their hard work; I tell them about their technical acumen; I tell them about a unique skill set that keeps them on the line while managing details behind the line!

My highest regard and respect belongs to you – the people of 9-1-1!

Thank you for what you do! Thank you for how you care! It is your spirit that binds us together – the spirit of 9-1-1!

Telecommunicators – the Heart and Soul of 9-1-1

Happy National Telecommunicators Week to all! My hat is off to each and every one of our Country’s emergency call takers. Thank You! Thank you for what you do!!

FIRST of the first responders. Unsung hero. Unseen voice. Calm in the chaos. All terms to describe our many professional public safety telecommunicators across America who staff over 6,000 of our 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) across the United States.

Individuals who sit under the headset of our call centers ready to act when that phone rings from the citizen who may only reach out to us once in their lifetime; when an officer safety issue presents itself; when the hurricane or tornado wipes out parts of, or an entire community; or when that senior citizen calls for assistance for a “non-emergency”, or just needs to know what day of the week it is. YOU are the calm and comforting voice; they may never see or get to meet.

Each of you comes from a different walk of life, background, education and community involvement; big families to small families; and all with your own challenges. When you walk into that PSAP and approach the console and place that headset on; you leave all those “outside” challenges “at the door” and stand ready to be the calm and comfort for the citizen, the guiding voice for the police officer, firefighter or paramedic in critical times.

I look back on my tenure as a 9-1-1 Director and recall the team of dedicated professionals that I had the privilege to call co-workers and friends –  they were a “family”. They were newlyweds, moms and dads, brothers or sisters, even grandparents from all walks of life. Several were volunteer firefighters in their own community; a few were EMT/Paramedics as well. Two were officials or referees for organized youth sports programs within their community.

The common theme that emerges in our profession is a common bond with our community – communities that we serve, communities we support, and those that we participate in because you care!

You care because you work swing shifts, night shifts, holidays and forego many family activities to be there with your colleagues 24/7/365. Your family expands to include your co-workers, partners and fellow public safety professions within your agency and across this great profession. You attend training and provide education to your communities about 9-1-1 and what we do.

Many of you go beyond your agency and provide precious and valuable volunteer time to our industry’s professional associations:  NENA, APCO, NASNA and others. When I have asked why, the answer most resoundingly is “to pay back a great profession and industry”.

I can say without hesitation that the Intrado family appreciates what all of you do, day in and day out to provide such a vital service to your community. In many cases, I realize that you don’t very often get the true recognition so richly deserved.

Thank you for taking time to read my thoughts about a group of true professionals. And a personal thank you to each of you for what you do, and to your families for sharing YOU with your community and the 9-1-1 profession.

Be safe!  Keep others safe!  And be well. Thank you!

New White Paper: Improving Emergency Outcomes with Three-Way Call Monitoring

When someone calls 911 from your organization, do you know where they are — and just as critically, do you know why they need emergency assistance?

Three Way Call Monitoring911 Enable is pleased to announce the release of its newest white paper, Improving Emergency Outcomes with Three-way Call Monitoring.

Many E911 solutions today can notify internal security that a 911 call is in progress, providing the caller’s extension, location, and name, which can be useful information for security personnel to have. However, without knowing what the emergency is, security personnel do not know how to respond appropriately. This white paper outlines how Three-way Call Monitoring addresses this problem, bridging the information gap between knowing that someone in your organization has called 911 and where they are located, and knowing why they need help.

Don’t miss out, download the white paper now!
