Special to The Advocate


This past Tuesday, City Councillors Anthony DiPierro, Stephanie Martins and Holly Garcia and Legislative Aide Nicholas Saia visited Everett’s E911 Building to recognize the city’s dedicated emergency dispatchers and to gain a better understanding of their operations in celebration of National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week (NPSTW). This is held annually during the second week of April to honor public safety telecommunicators for their commitment, service and sacrifice.

NPSTW was initially started in 1981 by Patricia Anderson of the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office in California. In 1994, President William J. Clinton signed Presidential Proclamation 6667, declaring the second week of April as NPSTW. This week is a time to celebrate and thank telecommunications personnel across the nation who serve our communities, citizens and public safety personnel 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
