WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) =- National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week kicked off this week.

This week-long event, initially set up in 1981 by Patricia Anderson of the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office in California, is a time to celebrate and thank those who dedicate their lives to serving the public.

A presidential proclamation was made for the second week of April to be designated as the National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week by then-President Bill Clinton in 1994.
