While other first responders such as police or firefighters are often heralded for their bravery during a crisis, the role of the call-taker, who is literally the first responder, often goes unrecognized. Operators must hear some horrific details and never know what emergency they’re going to be thrust into on the next call. Constantly being in crisis mode can erode their mental health and cause some 911 operators to experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
“9-1-1, what’s your emergency?” To the person calling 911 for help in an emergency, these words are a lifeline. But little thought is given to those answering the call. Those men and women who work as 911 operators or dispatchers must remain calm call after call, hour after hour, day after day. It is exhausting and stressful to be thrown into someone’s worst nightmare, and the emotional toll it takes on 911 operators is often overlooked.While oth...

Our daughter attended Celebree for pre-school for a little over a year. In general the staff were caring and you could tell that the vast majority of the staff were there for the right reasons. With that said, the curriculum leaves a bit to be desired in my mind as it tends to focus on many more play centered activities than it does structured learning. Our daughter has now attended a total of 3 pre-schools and Celebree has the lowest academic focus of any of them in our opinion. In summary, this is a great DAY CARE center if you have the money to spend. If you are looking for something with a true academic focus, look elsewhere.
