National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week occurs every year during the month of April. The week serves to recognize and honor those “first .. first responders” of our community, who serve in the role of telecommunicators within the 911 System. For every 911 call for emergency services made, they are the ones who answer that call and dispatch the the needed lifesaving fire, medical, and law enforcement response.
Pitt County Emergency Management (PCEM) recognizes this week through a full schedule of activities, often including:
A Proclamation from the Pitt County Board of Commissioners
Roadside banners and signage
Featured graphics on the Pitt County Website
Special posts on the PCEM Social Media pages
Special programming on PittTv (Suddenlink Cable - channel 13)
Check back to this page often, as it will be updated with specific details as Telecommunicators Week gets closer.
