A small thank you for dispatchers.

Dispatcher's Creed

The Dispatcher's Creed exemplifies why 911 Dispatchers are so special:

I am the voice that calms the mother into breathing life back into her infant son.

I am the invisible hand that comforts the elderly man who woke this morning to find his wife has passed away during the night.
I am the friend who talks the disgruntled teenager out of ending her own life.
I sent help when you had your first automobile accident.
I am where you need me and still here when you don't.
My office is never empty, and the work here is never done.
I am thankful to provide such a meaningful service.
