911 Service Not Working This Morning — Here’s the Dispatch Numbers to Call for Help
I was a firefighter and paramedic for years. 911 outages are not very common. It's a bit of a nightmare because everyone is trained to call 9-1-1 in an emergency. But it doesn't affect our response time. Basically, the way 911 works is dispatchers are trained to take the call and dispatch emergency responders at the same time. Our protocol is to be in our emergency vehicles moving within one minute of receiving the call.
