National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week

April 8-14, 2018 is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. The week honors emergency 911 operators and dispatchers from police, fire, and medical services for their commitment and service to public safety in their communities.

“Telecommunicators are the vital link ensuring information you provide during a 911 call is relayed to the emergency personnel who are coming to your aid. Celebrating this week is one way to recognize our operators and dispatchers whose work helps keep our citizens safe.” says Government Relations Minister Warren Kaeding In our province, the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) is responsible for managing Saskatchewan’s 911 emergency services.

In Regina and Saskatoon, 911 calls are answered by their respective cities while emergency calls from the rest of the province are answered by telecommunicators located in the provincial emergency communication centre in Prince Albert. In 2017, 364,297 calls were offered to Sask911 operators, which was nearly a nine per cent increase 2016. National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, which is endorsed by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials International, is celebrated each year during the second week in April.
