As requested, I Am A 911 Public Safety Dispatcher. AMA
I answer 911 calls and non-emergency calls for a consolidated dispatching center. I also dispatch emergency personnel for the local fire department, ambulance services, and three different law enforcement agencies. I've been doing this for over 11 years.
EDIT: Thank you all very much for the interest. I have to go get some sleep for my overtime grave yard shift tonight. Thank you all for the great questions! I apologize for those questions that I didn't get to answer. Be safe!
