MINDEN, Nev. (KRNV & - An area county is the first the state to take part in a new training program aimed at protecting kids. 19 Douglas County emergency dispatch employees attended a new training program by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The Center gave them cards with questions for callers written out already. It's supposed to help things stay calm in calls about missing or runaway children so dispatchers remember to get specific details.

“They are extremely hysterical, and if you react in a hysterical manner it's just going to keep escalating,” dispatcher Kristen Oilar said.

The communications center says hey get a call about a missing child about every other moth and runaways every week.
