Their relentless perseverance throughout the night undoubtedly assisted in the saving of thousands of lives. Our communication centers throughout the Vegas Valley should be proud of how they handled an incomprehensible situation and can find solace that their work was nothing short of heroic.

In your local communities, if you can, please go donate blood. While it might not help us directly in the aftermath of this incident, you never know when your community might be effected and will need it.
If you wish to make any monetary donations, please direct them to the gofundme page set up by Clark County Commissioner Chair Steve Sisolak, meant to benefit the victims of the shooting. They will need continued support in the coming days and weeks as they begin to piece their lives back together.
You can find the gofundme page HERE.

Everyday, in communication centers across the world, dispatchers train and prepare for moments like this hoping they never occur. It is because of that training they were able to perform at the enormous level that they did.
Please keep everyone involved in this horrendous incident in your thoughts and prayers.
If you have any other questions or comments please direct them to Matt Grogan at email@example.com. We will respond to you as quickly as we can.
