‘Going to have a good time’: Former Miss Florida retires from SWFD 911 dispatch

“It’s not nearly as busy. They also don’t have elephants knocking on their doors,” she added with a laugh.

Brown said she loved her job and will most miss her coworkers and helping people in the community, but she realized it was time to start a new phase.

“I’m 66, it’s time for me to let somebody else do it,” she said. “I didn’t feel that I was going to be the best that I could be for much longer.”

But though she is retired from 911 lines, she certainly will not be idle.

“My husband and I ride motorcycles, we hunt, we fish, we garden,” the Freeport resident said. “We’re going to have a good time.”
