Dispatchers are more than a calm and reassuring voice at the other end of the phone. The 15 unseen heroes, employed by the Bullhead City Police Department, are highly trained emergency services dispatchers with unique skills who work closely with police, fire and medical personnel.
The Bullhead City 9-1-1 center is responsible for dispatching calls to the Bullhead City Police Department and the Bullhead City, Mohave Valley, Fort Mojave Mesa and Golden Shores Fire Departments.
Dispatchers provide the vital link for the public safety services on which the community relies upon every day.
Emergency services dispatchers educate children on the importance of dialing 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency. Children are able to physically practice dialing 9-1-1 on a simulator to experience what it would be like to talk to a dispatcher. Parents are encouraged to teach their children their address and phone number.
Call Community Services Officer Lorrie Duggins at (928) 763-9200 ext. 204, to book a tour or 9-1-1 education demonstration.
