I was watching the news (can't remember what channel) last night and a story came on about a girl who called 911 for an ambulance because her dad was having a seizure...and the operator hung up on her because she cussed...then when she called back he called her a b****! The recording of this was just insane! She went down to her towns police station to confront the guy and get this: she got arressted for misconduct! The guy got suspended for 2 weeks without pay (the 911 operator was a sheriff or something, so he's the one who arrested her) but I don't think it's enough. It isn't like she was cussing at him, she was upset because of what was going on with her dad. If someone is going to do a job like 911 operating, they should be prepared to deal with highly agitated people. Do you think this guy should lose his job?

People who work for law enforcement &EMS system should be prepared to deal with agitated people. They can not go to the same level with victim or criminal .

yes he should be fired. I've even heard on news reports about rude 911 operators during a call. They were doing a story on I think it was Nancy Grace about the guy who shot his wife at the movies and her friends and they were playing the 911 calls and I believe it was her who said something about the operator being rude. When somebody sees something like an accident, or is in trouble you can't exactly expect them to make a lot of sense or have perfect recall. That should be part of the training and if they can't deal with that then there are other jobs out there.
