National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week

Huron Valley Ambulance in Ann Arbor

Countless people's lives are saved everyday thanks to the efforts of emergency dispatchers.

They're the person on the other end of the phone when you call 9-1-1.

To honor their service, April 10-16 has been named National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week.

I recently had a chance to talk with Dan Blaszkiewicz, an emergency dispatcher with Huron Valley Ambulance in Ann Arbor.
