Unsung Heroes #187

Uh oh. “06880” missed National Public Safety Telecommunications Week.

The town of Westport did not, though. As posted on their Instagram, 1st Selectman Jim Marpe and 2nd Selectwoman Jennifer Tooker visited the police and fire departments last week — and brought gifts.

As the town noted: “Dispatchers are the first line of the Police, EMS and Fire departments. They are voices behind every call for help that we never see but only hear. They work tirelessly to protect department members and residents of Westport. This week we celebrate our heroes with the headsets!”

“06880” adds our thanks to these men and women who work 24/7/365. It’s a stressful job, which they do with incredible poise, professionalism and compassion.

So to last week’s pizzas, we add this week’s Unsung Heroes honors. Thank you all!

    I’m glad they delivered local, top quality Domino’s pizza to these hard working essential people!

    By the way, I’ve been looking for years, where is the Westport Domino’s?

    Many thanks to these dispatchers and first responders. So much respect for these men and women.

    Fred, spot on. The 1st and 2nd Selectpeople couldn’t find a locally owned Westport pizza business? And Domino’s? This is wrong ar so many levels but also truly comical.
