I'm not OP, but everyone is going to react differently to what they are exposed to in this career. Personally after doing it for 16 years I grew to basically dislike meeting new people. I have a core group of friends that will always be there. I have zero interest in meeting new people. I'm also more attentive when it comes to mitigating risk when I'm out in public.

Always know your location. Answer any questions we ask. Those questions are not delaying the response.

We can always ask the officers, firefighters or paramedics if we are interested.

Most 911 centers if not all have contractual services with interpretation services. The caller can be conferenced in with them.

We want to gather pertinent information and get off the phone as quickly, but efficiently, as possible. As a general rule, but not universal, we want to get units started about 60 seconds after we answer the phone. This is not always realistic but it's a goal much of the time.
With the exception of calls where we are required to stay on the line because of a worsening medical condition or a in progress type call, calls really shouldn't last more than a few minutes.
