April 10-16 is National Telecommunicator’s Week. This is a time that we celebrate the amazing work of our “First” first responders. "I want to thank all our dispatchers and call takers for showing up every day to do their very best," said Chief Chris Skinner. "They are subjected to stress that many of us will never experience and they do that with grace and dignity. The work they do not only protects this community but protects each and every one of us that are out in the arena working hard for a better Eugene. Thank you dispatchers and call takers for being passionate about what you do!"
