MAKING A DIFFERENCE
A dispatcher’s job is largely thankless, Reyell said.
”You don’t do the job for any kind of glory,” he said, adding “You’re not going to get rich.”
But as long as Reyell can do at least a little bit of good each day, he’s satisfied.
When he and Owen come to work each day, they’re prepared for everything to change once they step behind the desk.
Reyell described his job simply in just one sentence: “It’s life on fast-forward.”
