This week is set aside each year as National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week to honor the hard work and dedication of the men and women who serve as dispatchers all across the United States.

The Thin Yellow Line represents Dispatchers...the unsung heroes of public safety. Dispatchers are that kind voice in the middle of the night during an emergency call. It is because of dispatchers that millions of Americans can get the help, care and protection they need in the most challenging moments.

The Shell Lake Fire Department would like to thank our dispatchers at the Washburn County Sheriff's Office and Burnett County Sheriff’s Office along with the EMS air dispatchers at Life Link III and North Memorial Health. Thank for you for all you do for us as the first, first responders.
