Even though it rained Sunday, April 15th, 2007, it could not stop the West Liberty Police Department and the West Liberty Fire Department from preparing a cookout to honor the West Liberty E-911 Telecommunicators.  April 8th through April 14th is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, which originated in 1991, is dedicated to the men and women who serve as public safety telecommunicators.  Most people would know the telecommunicator position as a dispatcher, but over the years the title has changed due to the increasing responsibilities that have accumulated over the years.

The cookout was enjoyed by all who attended.  Hamburgers, hot dogs, and many delicious side dishes made for an enjoyable meal.  Senior Telecommunicator Jackie Mayberry brought a Cornhole game, which made for some very entertaining memories.  The rain didn't stop so the activities were conducted in the basement.  Enough people allowed for a Cornhole Tournament, which was won by Jackie Mayberry and Carter Easterling.  CTO Chris Ball brought his Texas hold'em poker chips and two poker tournaments were played, with Tammy Ball winning both tournaments.

The West Liberty Police Department and West Liberty Fire Department would like to thank the following for their donations:  Dollar General Store #7418, Family Dollar Store #2091, McKenzie's Shopwise, Foodland Express, Rite Aid Store #1770, IGA Store #7971, West Liberty Chevron, Commercial Bank, Donna Pelfrey and Anthony Gullett.  We would also like to thank everyone who attended; friends, family and emergency service personnel, who came out to celebrate with us, and a special thanks to those who brought side dishes.

Here are a few pictures of the WLPD telecommunicators accepting a much needed new television for dispatch from the West Liberty Police Department and West Liberty Fire Department.  The Polaroid television was donated by the WLFD; the wall bracket was donated by the WLPD officers to help maximize space in dispatch.  All telecommunicators would like to thank the WLFD and the WLPD officers for not only the television and bracket, but for their appreciation of our dedication and a job well done.
