Kern County “911” Dispatcher Recognition Program

25 Jan

Dear friends:

I would like to ask for your very important consideration.  On April 13th, Limousine Scene will once again co-sponsor the Kern County “911” Dispatcher Recognition Program.   The recognition dinner program will be held at Crystal Palace and recognizes the people who answer our calls to 911 in the worst time of need.  This includes police, fire and sheriff agencies as well as the local CHP dispatchers.

I am pleading for your help.  We cannot do this without community support and the dispatchers who work behind the scenes deserve to be recognized.  911 dispatchers are the first person you talk in an emergency.  They provide lifesaving instructions before help arrives.  They answer the call of a police officer shouting into his radio, “Officer Needs Assistance” and thousands of medical emergencies each year.

They’re there on holidays, nights and weekends.  They deliver babies and save lives through medical instructions given by phone.  They are unsung heroes worthy of community recognition but there are no public funds for this.

I am asking you to help us through your generous donations of monetary donations, goods or gift certificates to be used as awards.  Please adopt a table of dispatchers for $250.  Even $25 will help.  Any and all contributions are appreciated and gladly accepted.  Checks should be made payable to KCDRP and mailed to us at 317 Ming Avenue, Bakersfield 93307.

All contributions will be recognized in a keepsake program, table signs and digital logos provided by you to be shown on the big screen of Crystal Palace for your support of our local heroes.

Dispatchers ride a roller coaster of emotions dealing with human tragedy on a daily basis.  Please help us reward their effort and service to our community.  Please don’t put this off.  Take a moment right now if you can and participate with us today.

Thank you,

Jim A. Luff,

Fundraising Chair
