This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

The Seminole County Fire Department recently welcomed two Emergency Communications Dispatchers to its Stork Club. On two separate days in June, Dispatcher Brittni Schmeiser (on 6/6/22) and Dispatcher Samantha Allen (on 6/20/22) both assisted in the deliveries of baby boys before Firefighters/Paramedics arrived on scene. Some dispatchers work their entire career without experiencing this type of 911 call. Brittni and Sam have both been on the job less than six months. Great job and congratulations on joining the Club!

The Seminole County Fire Department is currently hiring Emergency Communications Dispatchers. If you are interested and would like more information on this exciting career, please join us for our applicant information session on Thursday, September 1, 2022. Call or email Training Coordinator Sharon Owens 407-665-5167 sowens@seminolecountyfl.gov to reserve your day or evening spot.
