I worked as a 911 dispatcher for more than 23 years in Idaho. I know the lifestyle and weird hours can really take a toll on your health, for it was especially difficult on my eating habits. We used to laugh and say if you were inclined to gain weight that's what you did but we had several dispatcher who lost weight due to the stress. I of course was a weight gainer.

I have been a dispatcher for 21 years now. I work for a somewhat rural Sheriff's Office. We work 10 or 12 hour shifts which I am in favor of since it gives us more days off.

There are times I wish I could quit but generally that passes after a few months. I find that having other things in my life other that work makes me the happiest since work is generally a little negative when you are talking to people on the worst day of their life. I was surprised to find teams for dispatchers but that is good to have someone who understands your work to talk to.
