FORTUNA, CA - This Week, Public Safety Agencies nationwide are recognizing the pivotal role played by public safety dispatchers, who utilize telephones, radios, computers and technical skill to provide support to Law Enforcement, Fire Services, Emergency Medical Services and other governmental field personnel.

Each year, the second full week of April is dedicated to the men and women who serve as public safety dispatchers. In 1991, Congress proclaimed it as a nationally recognized week of recognition.

The Fortuna Police Department celebrates this year’s National Public Safety Dispatchers Week – April 9th – 15th in honor of their dedicated dispatchers who handle several thousand 9-1-1 calls each month. They dispatch officers and coordinate with allied agencies for other law enforcement, fire services and emergency medical services response to those in need.

The dedicated personnel of Fortuna Police Department Communications Center work around the clock, all year long, to support the officer in the field and help keep the public safe.

Chief William Dobberstein along with the officers of the Fortuna Police Department appreciate all of our dispatchers and take comfort knowing they are always there with skilled, compassionate help when we have an emergency.
