"It means we have a daughter who
is the essential, unseen voice on the phone
who, when tragedy strikes,
has to work past her own shock and trauma
of the situation to be the calm voice
in a life and death situation.
It means we have a daughter who,
when she is having a bad day,
has to let it all go and
stop thinking about her needs
so that she can be the one
to help someone through their bad day.
It means we have a daughter who
never knows what a day may
bring forth; she could have a day
of complete boredom or high anxiety.
And it also means that she is not only a valuable member of our family, but is also now a valuable member the community in which she serves and part of a remarkable, vital group of people...DISPATCHERS
Thank you for your hard work and dedication!"
- Norman and Lisa Nee, parents of Bridget, Dispatcher, City of Greenville Police Communications, SC
