International Control Room Week is to recognise and celebrate emergency service control room employees that often go unnoticed and quietly deal with traumatic, life changing situations daily.
The 22 to 28 October 2018 is a week dedicated to celebrating the achievements of truly remarkable people who are at the end of the phone when we need them, keeping us calm, reassuring us and updating us. They stay strong, supporting us through the most difficult of times.
This is the first celebratory week of its kind and its ultimately to say a huge thank you to each and every person working in emergency services control rooms.
We are inviting emergency service control rooms around the world to register for their control room celebration box, which is filled with all sorts of treats and decorations to get in the spirit and join us as we celebrate everything that’s great about the work they do.
