Angels on the Airwaves: Recognizing 911 Dispatchers

April 9-15 is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week.

9-1-1 dispatchers are unsung heroes, providing the first line of assistance in an emergency and a vital resource for other first responders.

Amanda Lytle has served 22 years with Owensboro-Daviess County Central Dispatch.  She says it’s a stressful but rewarding job with an opportunity to make a difference every day.

In the event that you need to call 9-1-1, remain calm and know your location.

It’s also important to sign up for Smart911, a free service that provides safety information to Central Dispatch so they can help you faster in an emergency.
