It is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week and local agencies are showing their gratitude for the dispatchers of the Uintah Basin Communications organization. Both the Uintah and Duchesne County Sheriff’s Offices shared their thanks on social media. Gifts and treats will also make their way to the team at Uintah Basin Communications from many community members this week. Among them will be Gold Cross Ambulance that will be delivering cookies and doughnuts to say thank you for the commitment to their profession. Gold Cross Director Scott Adams says a favorite quote he heard says it best: “Dispatchers are there to calm the scared, settle the upset, and simmer the deranged. They do it because they believe in what they are doing and they truly want to help. And they do it whether you know their job title or not, whether their officers, firefighters, and EMS know their dispatchers name or not, and whether they are thanked or not.” Thank you to all our local dispatchers!
