Unintentional calls tie up 911 line

Misuse and abuse of the 911 system is divided into two categories: unintentional and intentional.

Abuse of 911 is misdemeanor

Let’s explore the area of misuse and abuse of the 911 system. A lot of times people are calling us on the worst possible day of their lives; we want to let them know there are people here to get them the help needed. That’s what we’re here for.

Dispatchers do more than answer emergency calls

Here’s a little more about us in the dispatch center in Boulder City. We have eight dispatchers (at last) for the city that are full time and one part time. At this time, two are scheduled at a time for 12-hour shifts. With sickness, training, vacation and other issues we are commonly staffed with only one.

Take steps to reduce risk of falling

Each year, millions of older people — those 65 and older — fall. In fact, more than one out of four older people falls each year, but less than half tell their doctor. Falling once doubles your chances of falling again.

Use of 911 reserved for emergencies

It has come to my attention that calling 311 isn’t working for a large majority of callers. Out of frustration many of you try 311 and then just dial 911. This is not the answer.
