National Public Safety Telecommunications Week (NPSTW) is an annual event that takes place during the second week of April. The week is dedicated to recognizing the crucial role that emergency telecommunicators play in keeping our communities safe. These dedicated professionals are the first point of contact for individuals in distress, providing critical assistance until first responders arrive on the scene. NPSTW was initially started in 1981 by Patricia Anderson of the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office in California.
The theme for this year’s NPSTW is “The Power of Teamwork.” This theme highlights the importance of collaboration and coordination between emergency personnel to ensure the best possible outcomes in high-pressure situations. Compunetix is at the forefront of providing secure, emergency collaboration solutions.
