A Message from APCO President Gigi Smith

Happy National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week!  Just this morning, I welcomed a group of new hires to my center. I congratulated them on starting this new journey as a telecommunicator and noted that they couldn’t have picked a better week to start! I shared with them the love of my chosen career path, how much I’ve learned about life, my community and myself over the past 28 years, how blessed I’ve been with the opportunities that have come to me as a telecommunicator, and how proud I am of this profession and all those that dedicate themselves within it.

Thank You on Behalf of OEC and DHS

Each day will feature different dress up days (i.e. wig day, sports day, hat day and other fun ideas chosen by the Com Room). In addition to dress up days, we have a Pie Day and Valley Com purchases employee appreciation gifts for each employee.
