What is the nature of your emergency.

Default What is the nature of your emergency.

I'm a 911 call taker and police dispatcher, for reasons I shouldn't have to explain, I can't say -where- I work.

Regardless, the boundless stupidity of the general public will never cease to amaze me, or infuriate me, or lower my opinion of the "average" human being.

I to have a Police related job and have the greatest respect for the control room staff (what dispatchers are called in the UK), I know I could never deal with half of what you guys go through.
A PSA, if I may, as well as another.

My mom worked in an emergency room, so she saw only 1/3 to 1/2 of what you guys see. Based on her 'war' stories, I can only shudder.

And ask, have you heard the 'bambulance' 911 call?It was being played on the radio around here, a few years ago at least.
