This week was National Public Safety Telecommunications Week, which recognizes those who answer emergency calls to help citizens across the country. Local supervisor Cara Sorrells says that no two days are the same and that she is proud of the diligent work her staff does to help those who call. Telecommunicators are the people that answer 911 calls and then dispatch the necessary emergency personnel to the situation.

She adds that many of the staff in Washington has won or been nominated for the Iowa Chapter of the APCO Telecommunicator of the Year Award.
