At Bio-One NW Indianapolis, we understand the importance of efficient communication in emergency situations and recognize the critical service provided by 911 operators. This week, we honor 911 operators for their service during National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week.
911 operators are on the front lines, answering calls and providing critical information to emergency responders. They play a crucial role as the first point of contact for individuals in crisis, and their ability to remain calm and composed is essential. We work closely with 911 operators and officers to coordinate our response to biohazard and trauma cleanup situations, and their ability to gather critical information and provide guidance is essential to any emergency response effort.
We extend our thanks and appreciation to all of the 911 operators who serve our communities. Your dedication and hard work inspire us all. Take a moment this week to recognize the important work of our 911 operators. Thank them for their service and let them know that their efforts do not go unnoticed.

Bio-One teams across the U.S. answer calls to help their communities and remediate a variety of scenes. In our new blog series, we'd like to bring you into the Bio-One world by sharing stories of the unique and important work we do for local communities.
Here is Week 7 of our Bio-One Weekly Wrap-Up.
Thank You to the Thin Gold Line
The second week of April is a time to celebrate and thank telecommunications professionals who dedicate their lives to serving the public. Often called the thin gold line, 911 dispatchers are true heroes behind the scenes.
Coast to coast, Bio-One teams found fun and unique ways to recognize the Thin Gold Line.
Bio-One Helps Homeless Man with Vehicle Clean Up
This week, News San Diego reported "Homeless man's story inspires San Diego mom to enlist community's help", featuring Rene Flohr and Nicki Chipp-Flohr, owners of Bio-One. The Bio-One duo spotted a NextDoor post asking for anyone who could help 79 year-old, Les, who had been living out of his vehicle and was recently diagnosed with skin cancer. His vehicle was floor to ceiling full of items, and Bio-One was ready to help clean and disinfect the vehicle so it could be sold or donated.
In a message to Bio-One owners, Nicki said, "I am very proud of what we are doing to help someone. I thought you’d all appreciate it, since we live the Bio-One motto of #helpfirstbusinesssecond." We couldn't agree more!
