National Public Safety Telecommunications Week: April 9 -15

This week is National Public Safety Telecommunications Appreciation Week (April 9-15). We want to give a special thank you to our UCIPD Dispatchers as well as Dispatchers around the country.

UCIPD Dispatchers are the first to respond to the needs of our community when they call the Communications Center for assistance. The UCIPD Communications Center serves as the critical link between the University community and all public safety emergency and non-emergency responders. The Communications Center is a Public Safety Access Point (PSAP) for all 9-1-1 calls originating from University of California, Irvine, UC Irvine Health, and most cell phones on campus property.

For more information on this dedicated week visit:

Whether it is a call for assistance or a high stress emergency incident, our dispatchers provide a calm and compassionate response to the community and victims in distress, while simultaneously ascertaining critical information necessary to provide to responding emergency personnel. Dispatchers are truly everyone's "back-up" on every call, providing information and resources to help keep the community safe.
