I can't believe what people call 9-1-1 for!
I've been dispatching for more years than I care to admit, and it never ceases to amaze me what people call 9-1-1 for.
The latest--A guy calls 9-1-1, requesting a 5:30 wakeup call!

Had serveral looking for directions, and one wanted a phone number. I don't pick up most of the time, I work with another dispatcher that takes most of the calls.

-The trapped seal when you're 15 miles from the ocean and just had the largest blizzard in 10 years
-The neighbors dog is pooping in my yard.
-What is the correct time? Gee I don't know but here's the incorrect time bit$@!!!
-Can I get a burning permit???
-How do I get a hold of the police department?
-My 14 year old daughter won't go to her room.
Thankfully, with the new E-911 system we have a little yellow button that plays a recording something to the effect of:
"Were sorry, your call is not emergency in nature, please refer to your local listings for the non-emergency number"
I think I'm the only one who has had the bal$$ to use this so far, a few times as a mattter of fact on the famous burn permit question. Isn't technology great!
