Emergency Service Dispatchers’ and 9-1-1 Awareness Week

Emergency call takers and dispatchers are the backbone of B.C.’s emergency response system. They answer the most difficult 9-1-1 calls with calming and reassuring voices to making sure that you get the help you need.

To recognize the dedicated work of emergency call takers, dispatchers, technology specialists and support personnel, the Province of British Columbia has declared April 5 – 11 as Emergency Service Dispatchers’ and 9-1-1 Awareness Week.
