We're excited to kick off the first in our official CafeMom "Ask Me Anything" series!

One CafeMom member who has been a 911 operator for 23 years offered to answer all your questions about her job, and what it's like to help members of the public handle all kinds of emergencies day after day.

So, ask your questions here and she'll stop by to answer them! We created a new screenname for her (911operatorAMA) so she can respond anonymously but still be easily identifable in the thread.

And...go!

How many calls from little kids playing with their parents phones would you say you have got? What do you do when they call?

Thank you for what you do.  Is it hard to stay calm during a stressful call?

I was a telephone opr a long time ago and we would get calls from people who where so panicked and screaming with emergencies. It would put me into a panick myself. (I would have to connect them to their local police depts main number because it was before 911) I at times could barely work through there situation!

How do you handle that everyday, knowing someone life is in your hands! The stress must be hard to deal with.


Thank you for your work! You are awesome!
