This week is set aside to honor and recognize those faceless men and women who come to the aid of others.

When you have an emergency, they answer your call. Wood County 911 Director Randy Lowe says it is not just a job, but a calling.

One that dispatchers take very seriously. It is their way to give back to the community when people are in need.

And Lowe says there is a reason Congress dedicated a whole week, not just a day, to these responders.

"I think the reason why they wanted to make it a whole week is so people have more of an opportunity to recognize on a national level what these individuals do and allows us to celebrate their work for week long festivities," says Wood County 911 Center Director Randy Lowe.

Dispatchers are celebrating this week with different themed days.
A way to incorporate a little fun into their work week.
