Three cheers for the dispatchers at Jeffcom 911!The Thin Gold Line

This past week was National Telecommunicators Week, but last week’s incident kept us from taking a moment to recognize the hardworking, dedicated individuals with whom we work every day here in Jefferson County.

You don’t often see these faces, only hear their calming voices on the line at Jeffcom 911 when you need help. These dispatchers juggle multiple calls and requests under pressure throughout the day and night to help us keep you safe. They are the Thin Gold Line that holds us all together.

They all did an especially amazing job working with us, the schools, citizens and media during last week’s major incident.

We visited this morning to stop by and thank them for everything they do every day and to share a few photos. You can learn more about what dispatchers do on our Instagram story.

We’d also like to leave you with this happy note: JeffCom Supervisor K. Garcia helped deliver a baby this morning! Well done, Supervisor Garcia! We can’t think of a better way to start a Monday!
