APCO’s request for telecommunicator’s stories to publish on this site yielded more than 50 entries and a wide variety of submissions – intense, amusing, heartbreaking … and all true. We express our gratitude to all those who participated, as well as those who read, commented and passed along the stories. In addition, the following five entrants were randomly selected to receive Visa gift cards:
- Kyle Boeddeker, CENCOM, Kitsap County, WA
- Theresa Horn, Prince Georges County Communications, MD
- Wesley Hutchens, Forsyth County Emergency Services, 9-1-1 Communications, NC
- Ericka Masters, St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, FL
- Stephanie Phelan, Shreveport Fire Department Communications, LA
Thank you to all who submitted and all who serve. Look forward to another way to share your stories, coming soon on PSC Online.
