Dispatchers were presented proclamations from the State of Mass House of Representatives and the City of Gardner for National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week and honoring our dispatchers. It was a nice afternoon! Also the Chief, Neil Erickson and myself Disp. Supervisor Laurie Favreau gave gifts of new jerseys to all staff to wear one day of dispatch week. The shirts said “Thanks for taking our calls” 911 – Dispatch Appreciation Week April 2007
The dispatchers were allowed to wear jeans all week and wear their new shirts on Friday/Sat or Sun. They liked that most of all! No uniform!
