  • Trying to find a balance

  • Dispatchers often are the first ‘on scene’
    Dispatchers are essentially the first responders on any scene — even if just through the telephone. It’s their duty to determine the nature of the calls they receive, their location and what type of emergency services are needed. McDaniel said their main concern is public safety and officer safety. As dispatchers, they try to get the caller help as fast as possilble. They also stay online with the caller and give instructions on how to deal with the situation until the responders arrive.

I have loved Raley’s supermarket for the 38 years my family and I have lived in Winnemucca. It would be fascinating to know how much time I have spent inside those doors, not to mention the amount of money I’ve traded for the best and freshest produce available anywhere in Nevada along with an amazing selection of foods, meat, and so many other items.
