  10. Telecommunicator’s Code of Ethics As a telecommunicator, I regard myself as a member of an important and honorable profession. I will keep myself in the best possible physical condition at all times. I will perform my duty with efficiency at all times. I will be exemplary in my conduct, edifying my conversation, honest in my dealings and obedient to the law of the city, state and country. I will not, in the performance of my duty, work for personal advantage or profit. I will at all times recognize that I am a public servant. I will give the most efficient and impartial service of which I am capable at all times. I will be courteous in my contacts at all times. I will regard my fellow telecommunicators with the same standards as I maintain myself. I will be loyal to my fellow telecommunicators with the same standards as I maintain myself. I will be loyal to my fellow telecommunicators, my superiors and my agency. I will accept responsibility for my actions. I will do only those things that will reflect honor on my fellow telecommunicators, my agency and myself.
