To all my fellow 911 dispatchers…welcome! This is a safe place for us to laugh, cry, and learn. We may not always get the help we need from our agencies but we can at least help each other here!
I’m planning on posting bi-weekly…funny calls, dispatcher memes, stories, learning experiences and to have an open forum with all of you. Let me know what you’d like to see in the future.
I hope you’ll join me and share your experiences and stories. This is a tough job and if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry. You’re safe to anonymously share here, with no judgment passed and the opportunity to get real honest advice from those who have been working the trenches.
To all of the first of the first responders…welcome.
I’ve been a 911 dispatcher for four years. I work and live in a county with a population of approximately 353,000. Our ECC (Emergency Communications Center) assigns new hires either Police Specialty or Fire Specialty and both get Call Taking as well. I’m a Police Specialty currently.
