The questioning from the 911 operators is ridiculous. If you have to call 911 , state your emergency situation and address then hang up. If you stay on the line they are trained to ask you 50 scripted questions that won't do a thing to help you and will just waste valuable time.

It delays response. If the county had someone else answering the phones and then separate people on the radios this would be smooth. Every other stinking county has it this way but ours. Because our legislators nickel and dime every darn thing.

Everyone at the 911 center should be fired and replaced by a private contractor!

I have seen the 911 center take a total turn for the worse. Emergencies are not scripted, neither should emergency call taking and dispatching.
If you want to see a real PSAP travel to Onondaga County or Rochester. Oneida county is a joke and so are those who were elected and entrusted to run it efficently. I would guarantee if Pissante or revere had an emergency, i mean a true emergency and there was a delay in the dispatch due to the "scripted" call taking techinque the dispatcher would be paying the piper. Oneida County is so far behind everyone else its truly sad.

It's so bad people are just calling cops they know and reporting incidents thinking it might be faster even if the cop isn't working and most times it is faster. By the time they ask you the 12 questions the suspect is he sleeping and they finally send a car. I heard this revere guy is incompetent from past jobs. The actual dispatchers are not bad it's the system revere runs plus the guy taking the call is on the other side of the room of the dispatcher

Utica and new hartford only joined the county to save their respective municipality money. It was not because the service is better or more efficient.

For those who don't know what the lazy county employees are griping about, the codes that K. Revere is trying to get them to use when dispatching calls over the radio and in the computer system all come from a method of call prioritization devised in the 1970s in SLC, Utah. It is called EMD.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emergency_medica...

A key I know to work in an true medical emergency is to say that somebody is having a stroke. It will put the call to the highest level of action, since there is little time to wait for TIA/Stroke. Also, if somebody fell down, make sure you say they fell from a height of 15 feet, that increases the severity and will lower EMS response time.
