Mayor proclaims public safety telecommunications week
April 16, 2013
By Peter Clark
National Public Safety Telecommunications Week began April 14 with help from a mayoral proclamation.
Public safety telecommunications employees in the city will be honored through the week for their continued service. Issaquah annually observes the week to celebrate those 911 services and staff members who alert police and Eastside Fire & Rescue about emergencies.
“We like to do a lot of things for them,” Issaquah Police Department Cmdr. Stan Conrad said. “We get them lunch and lattes. We provide them with healthy meals, snacks, gift cards and letters. We pretty much spoil them for the week.”
During the April 1 regular council meeting, Mayor Ava Frisinger announced a proclamation to pay tribute to those employees.
“It is in honor of the diligence and professionalism of the men and women who keep our city and citizens safe,” she said, officially proclaiming the week for the people who work in the Issaquah Communications Center.
