In recognition of National Public Safety Communications week, the Washington Safety Center will have an awards banquet this weekend. Supervisor Cara Sorrells says being an emergency communicator can be a demanding job. She says they get a variety of calls…from the mundane…to the hysterical…and sometimes humorous. Sorrells says despite the challenges associated with her line of work, she and her colleagues enjoy what they do, and the fellowship they have. Sorrells says they'll be giving out awards for things like perfect attendance, and longevity at this weekend's banquet. It will be held at the Washington County Conservation Center at 11:00 Saturday Morning. She says the event is open to the public.
