As any public safety dispatcher or telecommunicator will tell you – it’s a dedicated job with many ups and down.  For Patricia, a dispatcher in Missouri –  this recent moment is one of her favorites.  Everything meaningful about the job, and why we do it, is encapsulated in this one photograph and the caption that goes with it.

This photo was posted to twitter on April 4th by @icedpattycakes - a 9-1-1 dispatcher in Missouri named Patricia. Published with her permission. Thanks @icedpattycakes - for the job you do and the meaningul message this image conveys to all of your colleagues!
