A 000 Worker Reveals The Traumatic Phone Calls They Receive Daily ABC

When you think of the hardest jobs in the country, some of the first ones you think of are those connected to the emergency services. 

SES, Police, Ambulance workers, Paramedics and of course, the 000 Emergency Assistance call workers.

Sometimes we forget that the people taking these traumatic calls are regular people who can be haunted by the events that they hear on the other side of the telephone line, and can also be extremely helpful when situations arise.

Listen to the full interview below where Carla explains how she used to deal with calls of this nature:
