land on the helo-pad at Shands Hospital in Jacksonville.
Today ends National Telecommunications Week honoring the Nation's telecommunications workers. However, the work of the duty officer doesn't end. They will continue to do their duty to ensure public safety throughout the year. The Jacksonville Regional Communications Center Duty Officers demonstrated their dedication on a recent trip with the Trauma One Crew.
On February 10, 2006, a Trauma One helicopter landed on the grounds of the Jacksonville Regional Communications Center to conduct training with the JRCC Duty Officers. Some of our duty officers were able to take a ride with the Trauma One Crew, which is based out of Shands Hospital in Jacksonville. Our Duty Officers were flown around the downtown area of Jacksonville and up the St. Johns River before returning to the helo-pad at Shands Hospital.
While our duty officers were treated to a nice ride above Jacksonville, they came back with some very important knowledge and facts about Trauma One and the duties and responsibilities of the crew. They were also given information regarding contacting Trauma One and what guidelines to use when requesting service from them.
Take a look at what some duty officers have done over the past year all across the state:
We encourage you to remember the commitment and devotion these men and women provide to ensure the safety and security for all of us. They deserve our thanks, not only during National Telecommunications Week, but each and every day!
