At the request of Community Engagement Manager Key Budge, the Tehachapi City Council proclaimed the week of April 14-20 as National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. Across the country, the second week of April is the week when public safety agencies recognize those who manage the 9-1-1 call centers, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The City of Tehachapi has five individuals who are trained to answer these calls.
