Image: Tell Me Exactly What Happened: Dispatches from 911 | Paperback: 192 pages | by Caroline Burau (Author). Publisher: Minnesota Historical Society Press; 1 edition (September 1, 2016)
Tell Me Exactly What Happened
911 Birthday (1968)
-- Haleyville, Alabama, introduced the nation's first 9-1-1 system at the police station. On February 16, 1968, Alabama Speaker of the House Rankin Fite made the first call from another city hall room. Congressman Tom Bevill answered it on a bright red telephone located in the police department.

Read: Tell Me Exactly What Happened: Dispatches from 911
-- In her new book, veteran 911 operator Caroline Burau shares her on-the-job experiences at a single-person call center (complicated by a public walk-up window) and ground and air ambulance service. Whatever the position, the challenges for a dispatcher never end. Tragedy, boredom, and mind-bending weirdness are constant companions as her stories — some funny, some odd, some sad — show. A broken penis, a case of domestic violence at the walk-up window, a tornado striking a mile away — Caroline Burau handles them all with efficiency, empathy, and humor.
