Mary Anne Burdo is at her desk at OHP in Guymon on Christmas morning. For her, working the holidays is not uncommon. She says she enjoys making sure other dispatchers get to spend the day with their children, rather than being at home around her own Christmas tree. However, Burdo said, next Christmas may be entirely different â€“ she will be enjoying retirement this time next year.
