IamA 911 Operator, AMA!
Hello! I am a 911 operator for a dispatch center that covers Fire and Medical for the entire county, as well as Police for 7 cities within that county. We receive about 2,000 to 4,000 calls everyday on 911 as well as our non-emergency line. I average about 70 calls per 8 hour shift, with approximately half being 911 and half non-emergency. I'd love to answer any questions as there are way too many misconceptions about what happens on our end of the line! Ask away!
