Dispatchers unsung heroes
Most of us have made “that” call. Something dreadful happens, and you run to the nearest phone to dial 911. Within seconds, you hear a calm, reassuring voice saying, “Kossuth County Sheriff’s Office. How can I help you?” Without hesitation, a dispatcher listens to the caller and determines the proper course of action, dispatching necessary emergency personnel to the scene or rendering life-saving assistance to someone in need.
During National Public Safety Telecommunicators week (April 12 through 18), all of Kossuth County salutes our dispatchers working at the Kossuth County Law Enforcement Center for a job well done.
