(By Senators Wooton and Bailey)

Recognizing January 28, 1998, as "911 Appreciation Day".
Whereas, All West Virginians are aware of the secure feeling that the 911 system is operational for their safety and welfare; and
Whereas, Few West Virginians take time to think of the people who operate on the other end of the telephone line when 911 is dialed; and
Whereas, These caring people work tirelessly behind the scenes assisting the citizens of West Virginia in some of their darkest hours; and
Whereas, The long hours of shift work, weekends and holidays are normal for these unsung heroes; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate:
That the Senate hereby commends our fellow West Virginians who work tirelessly for the benefit of others in the 911 Emergency System, many times placing themselves in danger for the safety of others; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Clerk is hereby directed to forward a copy of this resolution to the appropriate officials of West Virginia's 911 Emergency System.
