911 Telecommunicators honored at

Berrien County Board of Commissioners meeting

At the Berrien County Board of Commissioners meeting the morning of Oct. 22, 2020, two 911 Telecommunicators were honored for their service. Annually 911 operators from the County Emergency Communication Centers are invited to nominate their peers for consideration for the designation of 911 Telecommunicator of the Year. These anonymous nominations are considered by representatives from the County’s 911 Advisory Committee. The award is usually presented during National 911 Telecommunicators’ Week, which is annually recognized in April. Although delayed due to the pandemic, the recognition is no less deserved.
