Rockingham County 9-1-1 telecommunicators developed a video to showcase colleagues who serve Rockingham County citizens. See video on Rockingham County NC Facebook page!
Employees involved in the video making:
Keith Dunn - Telecommunicator
Hunter Gauldin - Assistant Lead Telecommunicator
Jennifer Baughn - Lead Telecommunicator
Baughn said:  "I wanted to recognize everyone that works here and let them know that they don't go unnoticed and that they are making a difference and are appreciated.  I thought a video would be the best way to showcase all of our employees during National Public Safety Telecommunications Week.  It takes all of us to make the center successful in serving the citizens of Rockingham County.  During this week, we had spirit week to lighten things up and just have some fun.  We also received much appreciated meals from the County Manager and Airlife. Rodney got us a banner to display and gave everyone stickers showing his appreciation.  We truly are a team and I am proud to be a part of it."

Rockingham County Emergency Services Director Rodney Cates calls them "THE ROCK!"  So this week, let's celebrate, thank and recognize National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week (9-1-1 dispatchers)!  Rockingham County Telecommunicators (9-1-1 team) have a different theme each day.  With a relaxed uniform policy due to COVID-10, the telecommunicators in these photos participated in Camo Day, Tie Dye Day, High School Day, Socks & Crocs Day, and SuperHero Day.  Special thank you items were given to telecommunicators to show appreciation for their valuable service. 
A colorful cake plus lunch was provided by a staff member; plus a special plaque was presented by AirLife Virginia, our air medical service! 
No photo description available.


An estimated 240 million calls are made to 9-1-1 in the U.S. each year. In many areas, 80 percent or more are from wireless devices. 

HOW TO OBSERVE:

Review 9-1-1 emergency call advice

  • 9-1-1 is for police, fire and medical emergencies only. Non-emergency calls should be directed to non-emergency phone numbers.
    • Details are critical. Stay on the line with the 9-1-1 operator and answer all the questions that they ask. Provide an accurate location, if you do not know the exact address, provide the call taker with all the details that you can. Look for landmarks, cross streets, signs, and buildings. First responders need an accurate location to respond as fast as possible.
    • Try to stay calm and speak clearly.
    • Don’t hang up when calling 9-1-1. If you called by mistake, let the operator know.
    • DO NOT call 9-1-1 for jokes or prank calls.

Can you post on the webpafe and FB to help our telecommunicators celebrate and receive the recognition that they so much deserve during National Public Safety Telecommuniaator Week.  National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week runs from 4/2/2020 through 4/18/2020.  We will have more pics as the week goes along.  
 
We are trying to celebrate National TC Week this week by having a different theme each day.  We had already relaxed our uniform policy due to COVID-19 and these pics show the TC's that participated in Camo Day and Tie Dye Day. 
We also had the banner over their heads made for this week and we had stickers made just like the banner.  Each TC received these stickers for their car, cooler, Yeti Cup, etc.
