DRACUT — Police Chief Peter Bartlett wishes to recognize the public safety dispatchers of the Northern Middlesex Regional Emergency Communication Center (NMRECC) during National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week.
During the week of April 11-17, public safety agencies take time to reflect on the critical role telecommunications professionals play in supporting first responders. The week, sponsored by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International, honors the thousands of men and women across the country who respond to emergency calls, dispatch first responders and equipment, and render life-saving assistance to residents
The Dracut Police Department is served by the team at the NMRECC, which serves both Dracut and Tewksbury. The Department joined the regional dispatch center in October. More information about the Center can be found here.
Since the start of 2021, NMRECC dispatchers have received 3,658 calls for the two towns.
“We are proud to honor the men and women at the Northern Middlesex Regional Emergency Communication Center not just this week, but each and every day,” Chief Bartlett said. “They’re a vital resource when it comes to any emergency response and we commend them for their commitment and service to the community.”
