WOW... this is scary not knowing if when you call 911 you get help. Come on York County let's get it fixed now before someone's life is lost due to the malfunction of your system.

If you call 911 make sure you are listening to the free scanner available on the web. Monitor their actions of your call. Tune in on the web broadcast of York County Police and Fire Emergency Services Scanners. Online digital scanner for your personal use @ and click on one of the scanners. Maxthon2 or internet explorer browsers work. Will not work on Firefox.

So is this the reason ( they are going to use) why when I called 911 for HELP I got no response. It was over a month ago and I AM STILL WAITING!!!!. Either that or my tax dollars are not good enough. BTW I dont cry wolf

I'm a little surprised. You read the hospital article and they had 47 responses and complaints and this article has 3 before mine.

How about you guys log onto York County's website and email the county commissioners about the spending on this $47 million dollar hick-up. Their email addresses are on the website.

Let's show some support to our local emergency services. Your life and/or their life could hang in the balance.

911 what and idea support your local emergency services. I will tell you what is scary, the new radios can be heard from one end of the county to the other great but when you have several together like you would have on a fire you can't hear ten feet apart. If a fireman gets in trouble inside a building and yells for help on the radio he is probably screwed. The local fire chiefs are pulling their hair out to find answers with little or no help. The communications on the fire last week in Hanover between the fireman there was terrible, if you heard someone you couldn't understand what they were saying and a lot of transmissions never went from radio to radio. You bet its time for the taxpayer to stand up and yell before someone looses their lives from this and its not if it is when.
