Emergency Dispatchers Recognized Nationwide

Posted: Updated:

Oftentimes people forget about the hard working men and women who are answering your 911 calls; but this week, nationwide, they are being honored.

"It's very stressful," Dispatch Supervisor Candace Garcia said. "We get the calls where there is screaming or maybe an officer is screaming, and we have to respond to all of those calls."

Those hard working men and women have to keep calm and keep the adrenaline down as they receive the frantic 911 calls. They have to get the correct information that they need for the officers.

They are the messengers, and this week the Corpus Christi Police Department and other agencies are thanking them for their hard work and service.
