By Space Coast Daily // September 24, 2021
BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – Titusville Police Public Safety Telecommunicators (PSTs), also known as 911 Dispatchers, answered a heartfelt call for support from their professional counterparts in hurricane ravished Louisiana.
Twenty-two 911 Dispatchers of the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office have been working every day since Hurricane Ida made landfall on Sunday, August 29, 2020, due to the devastation of the storm.
In fact, many of these 911 Dispatcher’s homes were damaged and some completely destroyed by Hurricane Ida, yet incredibly, they maintained their public safety posts working tirelessly to provide their community with constant communication and contact with emergency services.
In recognition of this incredible dedication to community service and safety, Titusville Police 911-PSTs adopted the Plaquemines Parish Dispatchers team and collected items for a special care package consisting of cleaning supplies, personal hygiene supplies, puzzles, snacks, and numerous gift cards to Home Depot, which arrived on Thursday, September 24, 2021 to communication headquarters.
“Members of our 911 PST team are always dedicated to the safety and well-being of the citizens of Titusville,” said Communications Section Manager Greg Morrison.
“Now they are reaching out with compassion and generosity to fellow Dispatchers in Louisiana as they recover from the disaster created by Hurricane Ida,” added Morrison.
