    Knowing how stressful a dispatcher’s job can be, I am sure all of these individuals deserve this Award for their actions described above. However, having worked with Heidi Smith, I know and have seen her dedication to this profession, the citizens and the deputies like myself that depend on her to do her job in the professional, efficient and resourceful way she does it every day. Congratulations on the nomination Heidi, award or not, I appreciate what you and everyone else in dispatch do every day.
