Bladen County 911 Dispatcher Assist With Child Birth


On Tuesday, May 19, Bladen County Sheriff’s Office 911 Telecommunicator Jasmine Collins received a call about a woman in labor in the Owen Hill area. The local mother could not make it to the hospital in time to deliver her baby.

Collins, who has received training in Telecommunicator’s Emergency Medicine Guidelines, began instructing the brother of the expecting mother in the appropriate steps to take in delivering the child. Collins was able to talk the brother through the process, and the baby girl was delivered without any problems, according to Bladen County Sheriff’s Office.

EMS was dispatched to the scene, and upon arrival, the mother and child were doing fine.

“Jasmine (Collins) did an outstanding job taking the caller through the process of the delivery and keeping the caller calm during the process,” said Supervisor Melanie Duncan.

“We appreciate the hard work and great job our telecommunicators do on a daily basis with all types of calls,” said Sheriff Jim McVicker. Our telecommunicators are the lifeline between the public, law enforcement, fire, and rescue.”
