Sask. government honouring emergency operators for National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week


The Saskatchewan government is celebrating National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week by honouring 9-1-1 operators and dispatchers from police, fire and medical services for their commitment and service to public safety in their communities.

“Citizens and first responders both trust and rely on the professionalism of telecommunicators to help them during emergencies,” Government Relations Minister Warren Kaeding said.

“Telecommunicators are the vital link ensuring the information you provide during a 911 call is relayed to the emergency personnel who are coming to your aid.  Celebrating this week is one way to recognize our operators and dispatchers whose work helps keep our citizens safe.”

Celebrated each year during the second week in April, National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week runs from April 8 – 14 and is endorsed by the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials International.

In our province, the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) is responsible for managing Saskatchewan’s 911 emergency services.

The SPSA was established as a new Treasury Crown Board in November 2017 and is meeting the needs of our rapidly-growing province and current technology demands.

In Regina and Saskatoon, 911 calls are answered by their respective cities, while emergency calls from the rest of the province are answered by telecommunicators located in the provincial emergency communication centre in Prince Albert.

In 2017, there were a total of 364,297 calls made to Sask911 operators, which was nearly a nine per cent increase from 2016.
