'More than clerical': A day in the life of Ledyard dispatchers

Ledyard Emergency Services dispatcher Michael Gilman takes calls Tuesday, April 16, 2019, in the town's dispatch center. Legislation in Congress would reclassify dispatchers as first responders instead of clerical workers, making them eligible for services available to firefighters and other first responders.  (Sean D. Elliot/The Day)

In each situation a firefighter or police officer handles, a dispatcher is on the other end. Yet they're considered "clerical," like secretaries, rather than "protective," like other first responders.
