  1. Erik Snell:

    Our meteorology team is the best in the business, they took a hard look at the weather data and the track of the storm and worked with the flight crew and dispatcher to agree it was safe to operate the flight. And our flight and ground crews were incredible in their effort to turn the aircraft quickly and safely so the flight could depart well before the hurricane threat.

  2. Marcus Jones:

    I commend the excellent work of the police dispatcher and call taker, with our Emergency Communications Center, as well as the courageous acts of our officers potentially going into a dangerous and unstable situation to arrest this suspect.

  3. Tim TenEyck:

    911 dispatchers handle these calls and don't get the recognition for their work, someone else could've dropped this call, but this is nothing that any other dispatcher across the US couldn't have handled.

  4. John Conneely:

    The first thing I did when I got in the car was get on the radio to a firehouse that I knew we were going to pass to see if there was an ambulance in quarters, and when the dispatcher got back to me and said there wasn't, that's when we made the decision to keep going.

  5. Kyle Plush:

    Kyle Plush parents do it how Kyle Plush parents did it in the old days, write it down on an index card and the card is handed to someone somehow sending the person dispatching on that channel, he said. Plush suffocated after he became trapped under the third-row seat that flipped and pinned him while he was trying to reach his tennis equipment. The teenager told 911 operators where he was located, but authorities were not able to find him. A deputy sent to the scene soon after called in to report that he could n’t find anyone trapped in a van, and questioned if the call had been a prank. 911 DISPATCHER WHO ANSWERED CALL FROM BOY CRUSHED BY MINIVAN SEAT COMPLAINED ABOUT JOB DAYS BEFORE INCIDENT Police said Amber Smith, the 911 operator who answered Plush’s second call, failed to relay information to the additional officers who were at the scene. During the call, Plush explained to Smith the call was not a joke. I am trapped inside my gold Honda Odyssey van in the parking lot of the Seven Hills... Send officers immediately, Plush pleaded. I ’m almost dead.
