IamA 911 operator/dispatcher - AMAA!
Hi Reddit! I've been a 911 dispatcher for several years now. I never planned on taking this career track, but have grown to love what I do. I will try to answer most questions to the best of my ability, but remember I do have to adhere to privacy and HIPAA laws.
Update: Alright ladies and gents, I'm out for now! Remember, National Telecommunicator Appreciation Week is April 13 -19th! So find your local 911 center and send a card, email, or find out if they're hosting an open house and go let them know that they are loved! Maybe even get an IRL AMA going on!
Edit: Wow! Thank you, /u/suchtaco for gold! You all have been so great! I'm so grateful i get to serve awesome people like you guys!
