UMATILLA COUNTY — Behind every emergency call for help is a dispatcher, or as Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office Communications Capt. Karen Primmer said, “As dispatchers, we’re the first first responders.”

The second week of very April is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week to recognize the important role dispatchers play in emergency management and response, Primmer said, and highlights dispatchers nationally for their duty and service as the “true first responders.”
