They answer some of the most difficult 9-1-1 calls with calming and reassuring voices so that B.C. residents can get the help they need.
Emergency Service Dispatchers and 9-1-1 Awareness Week is April 4-10 in British Columbia this year. The week is intended to recognize the vital role BC Emergency Health Service (BCEHS) call-takers and dispatchers play in providing inter-facility and emergency medical care to British Columbians when they need it most.
We sincerely thank all our call-takers and dispatchers for their dedication to their profession and for providing the best possible patient care. They make an incredible difference in the lives of those who are in a time of crisis and need help. Their compassionate care, especially during the toughest calls and situations, is nothing short of heroic. Their commitment during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been no different. We are incredibly grateful for them!
Please join us in thanking
our hard-working call-takers and dispatchers for the incredible work they do, 24/7, each and every day.
