This week is National Public Safety Telecommunications week, and Lowndes County dispatchers are having some fun.
Tuesday, 911 dispatchers dressed up as superheroes.
Danny Weeks, director of the 911 center, said it's important to remember the community around the clock.
Dispatchers take calls 24/7 and help first responders. A job the director said it no easy task.
"It takes a lot of seasoning and training to do what they do everyday," said Weeks.
Weeks said dispatchers will have a different then each day, providing workers with time to relax and "have a little fun."
He said its important to show appreciation for these local heroes.
