This was very interesting this week. We talk about Communications in which includes dispatching. I was really impressed of all the calls and how they have to dispatch. We were given a test and on the test was three columns one labeled Numbers, another Color and the 3rd was the alphabet. What we had to do is listen to the dispatch and write down everything that was being said in the correct column. This was not easy because sometimes the dispatch had 3 things said at once and it came very fast. In a split second and try to write down the info too. I know I didn't pass this test. I now admire those dispatchers!!
Later today my husband and I are going to sit for 4 hours and watch them at work and be able to ask questions. I found it interesting that they are now looking to update the program that can use texting or pictures to send to the dispatchers that might help them out. I also found it interesting that people use the computer to call in 911.
The jail food menu was Hamburger casserole, lettuce salad, hot apples, bun and cookies.
