Khan Recognizes 911 Public Safety Telecommunicators

Pa. state Rep. Tarik Khan spoke about legislation that would reclassify 911 Public Safety Operators as First Responders, which would grant them better benefits, negotiable wages, boost recruitment, and ensure workplace dignity among dispatchers. In many cases, these dispatchers are listening to someone who may be taking their last breath or someone who is witnessing someone else dying. It’s time that 911 dispatchers get the recognition they rightfully deserve.
