Yep, that's what I do. I love it. Nothing more exciting than sitting there doing nothing then having all the crap hitting the fan all at once. :D

Actually this is a compromise for me, I was a firefighter for 12 years then I blew my back out and can't do that anymore, so I wanted to stay plugged into emergency services work somehow and this worked out.

when i did it.. they had just established civilian dispatchers.. prior to that injured FF's would do the fire side and injured PO's would do the police side..
the town got the idea to save money and use civilians and merge the 2...

basically both depts. resented us, as we were sort of taking a job away from one of their own guys...

plus it was a smaller town.. sometimes boring and sometimes wicked crazy...


i could not get out of that job soon enough..

We are the primary 911 answering point for our county. We don't dispatch police, we forward those calls on. We handle dispatching for 9 volunteer fire departments, 2 paid fire departments and two ems agencies.

All of the guys I work with are either retired firefighters, or current volunteer firefighters that dispatch full time.

I find it funny that you couldn't get away from it fast enough, and here I am looking forward to going back in a few days! ROF

I guess its something that either one likes or doesn't, but hey... where else can you watch tv all night and surf MTF all night long? :D

3:50 AM CDST... I am the only one here! I just got home from work, kind of a late night for me! Usually I would be home by 2:30 or so.

It is only 20 degrees! It is May 3! Snow on May 1st!

Guess were getting payback for the high 70's in early April!

Have a good day all!

Actually as far as the night owls go, I do that once in awhile, but my habit is going to the active posts link first and pulling up posts for the last 2 days, then I kinda follow them thru the night, but I don't recall this one showing up since 5/5 until you just posted a few days ago, anyway, I get to work three nights Tuesday, so I'll see ya around the board somewhere :trink39:
