In April, the City of Arlington saluted the 9-1-1 operators and dispatchers who answer the calls and save lives every day. April 10 - 16, the City celebrated National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week.

"Our team of dedicated telecommunicators provide a vital link between citizens and first responders, and they are absolutely essential during the 911 emergency response process. If it doesn’t go right in Dispatch, it doesn’t go right in the field,” said Don Crowson, the City’s fire chief and director of emergency management. “We are very thankful for their service to the Arlington community.”

You can read more about National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week in the latest edition of the Put Technology to Work newsletter. This edition also features the Arlington Fire Department’s first Community Health Assessment Survey, Rush Creek Area Sanitary Sewer Improvements and how the City’s IT Department created a specialized network in preparation for the 2022 Korn Ferry PGA Tour.

All quarterly City Council priority newsletters are now produced in a digital formal, allowing for layers of additional video content and important links.

The Arlington City Council has identified “Put Technology to Work” as one of six priorities. Technology is an essential aspect of daily life and has quite the impact on our organization, residents, visitors and businesses. It is also integral in achieving the City’s other priorities: Invest in Our Economy, Support Youth and Families, Enhance Regional Mobility, Champion Great Neighborhoods and Build Unity.
