State Parks Communications Operator Adam Kanthathin

SACRAMENTO –  When California State Parks Communications Operator Adam Kanthathin answered an incoming call to 911 on April 4, 2017, he had no idea who needed help on the other end of the line.  It turns out, for Kanthathin, just two months on the job at the State Parks Northern California Communication Center, the call would be a “stand-out, memorable one.”  A woman taking a “selfie” on a restricted area of the Foresthill Bridge (the tallest bridge in California) lost her footing and fell to the canyon below.

“I enjoy being a communications operator because every day brings something new,” said Kanthathin, when asked about his job.

“Some Californians and visitors to California have no idea we have communications operators who answer emergency calls for help within the State Parks Department,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.   “We are proud of Adam Kanthathin and all of our emergency dispatchers and communications operators.   Adam is there when an emergency arises, speaks to the caller with professionalism and gets emergency response crews to the scene.  I’m sure he is as relieved as we all are, that the fall victim survived.  Thank you, Adam for your very important role in public safety and first response.”
