This week begins National Telecommunicator Week. I would like to tell all Telecommunicators THANK YOU for what you do each and every day.

To the best crew of Telecommunicators a person can ask for, I am talking about those here at Morgan County E-911. THANK YOU for everything you do each and every day to keep the citizens and responders safe day in and day out. I know often you go unrecognized, but know that I am proud of you and proud to call you family. You are communicatio...n professionals and you show it each and every day. I know THANK YOU, is not nearly enough to show how much you are appreciated, and words could never express what should really be said about what you do. Please know you are appreciated and what you do means something special. I hope each of you have a great week and know I am proud of you.

On behalf of the Board and all of us in Administration, THANK YOU and God Bless Each of You!

Respectfully,
Matthew Brown, Director
