    My husband’s a three Firefighter, and why EMS or Emergency Dispatcher ( full disclosure I was both for a while, then I took on the completely non-stressful job of being a Mother )is not on here is a travesty. Talk about stress!!! Lives are in your hands, if you make a mistake, say the wrong things, send the wrong units to the wrong address, give the wrong updates, get the intercept location wrong, not updating your crews about street closings, Hospital diversions. I certainly am not saying these other Jobs are not stressful but with the exceptions, and they are big exceptions, only Police, Fire and our Military face life or death situations on an almost daily basis. And for them it’s not only someone else’s life but their own. I would love to know who makes these lists?  Where do they get their info?
