WHEREAS, every day, millions of people depend on the skill, expertise and commitment of the men and women who work in public safety telecommunications. These individuals help save countless lives by responding to emergency calls, dispatching emergency professionals and equipment and providing moral support to citizens in distress, and

WHEREAS, the term 9-1-1 is often associated with rapid emergency response, poise under pressure, aid and compassion in times of distress and critical decision-making within seconds.
