Good afternoon folks! I hope everyone is having a great day. This week on Within the Trenches I sat down with Trista of Allegan County Central Dispatch to tell her story. We talked about how she got into the profession of emergency services as well as how callers can screw up her name. We touched on the many questions we ask and how the night shift of 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. can bring horror over the radio. “SHOTS FIRED” is something we never want to hear yelled over the radio but it comes with the job. We describe two incidents that occurred and how we felt during those calls. This is a must listen and make sure to comment.

Call of Duty
Taking a call can bring such fear;
a yell, a scream, a gasp of one’s breath.
The caller’s eyes shrink-wrapped with a tear,
as she calls for a loved one near death.
You have done all you can behind a phone,
you comfort, listen and do what is best.
The time has come you hear that moan;
it is time for the loved one to rest.
The sirens yell over the cries,
this is my job; why I am here.
I listen as a loved one dies,
taking a call can bring such fear.Post Views: 326
