City of Berea Honors 911 Dispatchers

The City of Berea joined other local governments in honoring 911 dispatchers when Mayor Steve Connelly proclaimed April 8-14 National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. Accepting the honor on behalf of Madison County E911 telecommunicators was shift supervisor Jodi Webb. The proclamation stated the following:

Whereas emergencies can occur at anytime that require police, fire or emergency medical services, and

Whereas when an emergency occurs the prompt response of police officers, firefighters and paramedics is critical in the protection of life and preservation of property, and

Whereas the safety of our police officers and firefighters is dependent upon the quality and accuracy of information obtained from citizens who telephone the Madison County 911 center, and

Whereas Public Safety Telecommunicators are the first and most critical contact our citizens have with emergency services, and

Whereas Public Safety Telecommunicators are the single vital link for our police officers and firefighters by monitoring their activities by radio, providing them with information and insuring their safety, and

Whereas Public Safety Telecommunicators of the Madison County 911 Center have contributed substantially to the apprehension of criminals, suppression of fires and treatment of patients, and

Whereas each dispatcher has exhibited compassion, understanding and professionalism during the performance of their job in the past year;

Therefore Be It Resolved that I, Steven Connelly, Mayor of the City of Berea, declare the week of April 8 through 14, 2018 to be National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week in the City of Berea, in honor of the men and women whose diligence and professionalism keep our city and citizens safe.
