Description

"We lock our doors at night to keep the outside world, to keep evil out, right? ...but what happens when evil has a key?" Those were the words spoken by Nation Hahn, a man who knows first hand how evil can deceptively find its way into your home without warning.

what a beautiful way to express so much sorrow but gratitude and love at the same time. what a fantastic way to turn a tragedy into Grace and understanding.

That closing impact statement was so very touching! My heart goes out to this family 😢 They truly have my upmost respect and admiration for their integrity and strength throughout the worst ordeal imaginable. What happened was wrong on so many levels. Its very upsetting and that kind of betrayal is bound to leave its mark. He was so very correct when he said its easier to not trust, I totally understand thhat, but its comforting to hear that they have good people around them that have given them some faith back in humanity as that is such a difficult obstacle to overcome. I wish them my full love and respect in moving forward the best way possible ❤️ Once again, I appreciate the hard work and integrity that goes into putting this show together. Definitely a favoured podcast of mine. Much love from Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

In general, these 911 operators ask really stupid questions and don't use active listening skills...they ask a question and don't wait for an answer, or ask questions which the caller has already provided the answer to.

Kymmjellybean Have you ever worked as a 911 operator or worked in the Emergency field at all as a EMT, Paramedic, Firefighter, or Police Officer? There are many reasons that the questions they ask or even why they repeat these questions. It isn't necessarily because they weren't listening or because they don't care about the situation. Many times when the repeat a question that has already been asked or answered it is because they are attempting to get more information. Many times during these 911 calls when individuals are very upset or in shock so they end up leaving out very pertinent information that could help the responding individuals whether it be LEO's or other Emergency providers. A lot of times things that could affect the safety of these individuals. They also have the questions about the individual who is injured status so they are able to provide medical direction via the telephone to help not only provide assistance, but to decrease the chance of a negative outcome. You must understand in these situations especially the ones that we listen to on Sword and Scale that we have a 911 call played that these situations are very high stress dangerous situations. So it is important that they do what the operator can to get the information they need and to provide information to the individual on what to do not only for the callers safety, but as well as anyone who is injured. Everyone believes that when you call in that 911 automatically has your information populated in front of them or even that they can ping your phone to obtain GPS location. Yes the technology is there and most times they are able to, but this takes quite a bit of time to get the proper location to be able to send assistance. This is time taken away from the individual that needs assistance. I could honestly go on and on about the importance of the questions they ask and the way the calls go. I am by no way saying that some of these operators not in the wrong, because as with all jobs there is always a few bad apples that should never have been hired or should have been caught and reprimanded prior these unfortunate situations. With that being said there hundred of thousands of dispatchers that love their job and do there job wonderfully by always trying to go above and beyond for the individuals that are calling for assistance. This is a very STRESSFUL job that like many Emergency Fields are easy to get burnt out on. The PTSD for these fields are very real. I know the PTSD is not apart of anything you commented. The reason though that I mention this is because it does affect you at your job even though you do everything to not allow it. Many think these dispatchers are not sympathetic in what they do. Which is completely not true. They just have to not only by personally telling yourself this, but by direction of their job title they are to not become attached to any of these situations so that you do not become emotionally involved. This is very hard to do and many times when you do it it may come across unsympathetic. I say this because I see comments all the time about how rude or unsympathetic that these individuals are. Please just take the time to remember that. Especially if you ever God forbid have a situation that you have to call 911 that they are doing whatever they can to keep you calm as well as dispatch the proper resources that are needed at the place you are calling for. Sorry for such a long rant or comment, but as I said I just want people to see the other side of the picture. Thank you! Have a great day!
