The beginning of the Christmas holidays provided the backdrop for the Natchitoches Parish Emergency Communications (NATCOM) 9-1-1 team to come together and enjoy an informal lunch as a precursor to the Holiday Season. Workers from the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office Communications Division, Natchitoches Police Department Communications Division, Natchitoches Parish Office of Homeland Security, and the Natchitoches Parish 9-1-1 Communications District came together to enjoy a “pot luck” lunch, and to share fellowship in preparation for the fast-approaching and busy holiday season.

While most of us will be home celebrating and enjoying family and friends over the holidays, the emergency call takers and dispatchers, who staff the NATCOM 9-1-1 facility, will be vigil, standing ready to answer your 9-1-1 calls for help. Please take a moment to remember these dedicated individuals. All of us here at NATCOM, want to extend a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of the other law enforcement, fire, and EMS public safety personnel throughout the parish. And to all of our residents, visitors, and travelers thought-out the parish, we want to wish you a very Merry Christmas, and safe Happy New Year!
