yeah emoticon Had some 'interesting' callers today. Amazes me how unhelpful some people can be emoticon

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Keep trying - you CAN do it - believe in yourself!

Hi all, I'm in New Zealand and am in training to be a communications operator for our 111 system. I am not sure if you guys are comms or dispatch. I will be comms - so taking calls, logging them, and then the dispatcher is in direct radio contact with the Police units etc.

I have been scoping while training and some of the calls *insert eye rolls* but I had my first 1X last Saturday (suicide) and a pretty good 1M (mental health)

You have to admit these calls help break up the day (or night). Things can get pretty grim.

We just had someone call 911 and hang up. When my partner called him back he said his dog made the call and he was serious and not even crazy. Really it isn't slow enough that we need dogs to call to have something to do...

Oh Yeah, the crystal ball. How about when traffic is going to start moving again or if their driveway has been plowed!

Don't you love the calls where they want you to consult your crystal ball and tell them when the power will be back on or when it will quit snowing.

Ok, so we all get "those" calls. We just kind of shake our heads and get back to work. Well, last night, a lady called 911 because it was too windy and it was ruining her trees!!! Now I don't know about you, but what did she want me to do?? Call the police, the fire department, wind control??? Seriously, people get a life!!

911 seems to get the same kind of weird calls all over the country. I worked (past tense) as 911 dispatcher in Idaho for 24 years and some of these calls sound so familar. emoticon

female caller calls 911 from her cell. She's locked inside her vehicle and her keys are stuck in the ignition. she's freaking out. I said "can you open the door manually". NO she says, the keys are stuck and I can't get the button to unlock them. OMG, officer arrives and puts arm thur rolled down window and pushes the lock up. She had the wrong set of keys, and didn't know she could unlock any other way

I have one for you. I was listening to a recording for call evaluations. The male caller was yelling at another male in the area while he was on the phone with the dispatcher reporting that the male was trying to do inappropriate things to him and he wanted him to leave. You could hear the male on the phone question the other male, Why is it so hard to leave me alone? Why is so tough! Why are you so fascinated with me.... my name is not "Obama". I almost fell out of my chair. I am going to have to give the dispatcher the Stone Cold Steve Austin Award for keeping her cool and not laughing at the caller. emoticon

Sooo many over the last 24 years but this morning some woman called in a dead possum in the roadway and then told us to hurry because it was moving away...... Then there's the other kind - right now we are working a shoplifter that ran from police and left her baby in the cart. PEOPLE! aka job security.

I know that this is a weight lose site/group however who doesn't like to talk about those breathing dead guys and the dead breathing guys. Or the dancing bears, and so on....So if you hav a good/bad/funny call you want to share with your fellow dispatchers then fire away! I will have to add mine a bit later.
