Fire controls generally feel remote from the rest of the organisation, a bit of a thankless job so a week where control rooms are recognised is a great way to make staff feel appreciated and know that the role they carry out is vital. Every emergency starts with a call to a Control Room and those calls are answered by #UnsungHeroes.
We are inviting emergency service control rooms around the world to register for their FREE control room celebration box, which is filled with all sorts of treats and decorations to get in the spirit and join us as we celebrate everything that’s great about the work they do.
Thank You * Gracias * Merci * Tack * Danke Sehr * Dziękuję Ci

For every mention of #UnsungHeroes across social media during International Control Room Week , NEC Software Solutions will donate £1 to the Mind, Charity and the Scottish Association for Mental Health.
Mental health calls into the control rooms are at an all-time high, volumes have grown. This coupled with the unique pressures of the job, causing nine in ten emergency services employees to experience stress, low mood and poor mental health at some point. By supporting and raising money for these charities, it gives us a real chance to help change lives and leave a positive, lasting legacy.
The Blue Light Programme launched by Mind is designed to tackle the high level of mental health support needed within the emergency services.
Share your stories, upload pictures of your control rooms and give shout outs to your colleagues using #UnsungHeroes and each time you do, you’ll be raising money.
