    Have you talked to a male 911 operator?

    It seems as though all 911 operators are female.  I've never talked to a male 911 operator and don't know anyone who has.  Have you?

    Yes, I have talked to several male 911 operators, there aren't usually as many of them, but they are around.  Sometimes they use it as a way to get employed by a law enforcement agency.  Once they have their foot in the door it might be easier to become a police officer.

    I have only ever had to call 911 less then a handful of times. Though I believe that at least two of those times was a male emergency operator.

    I'd imagine womenly voices probably benefit an operator in such an industry. You're talking to panicky people all day long, and you have to get them to chill out. Can you imagine a big deep booming voice from the phone telling you to "please calm down"? lol

    I have never called and talked to one but I did work as a 911 operator in Lexington SC and we had two male operators on our crew. But, that was back in 1994.
