Our system is also Phase II compliant for cellular phones.  This means that the closest cellular tower routes the phone call to the assigned police department for that area.  When a 911 call is made from a cellular phone, the dispatcher receives the wireless carrier’s name and 24 hour security phone number, the location of the cellular tower, and the latitude/longitude coordinates of the phone (usually within a matter of feet).  It does not give elevation, so it will not identify which floor a caller is calling from.  All of this information, along with the CAD mapping system, allow for the dispatcher to locate a caller even if they are moving or unable to provide a location.  About half of the 911 calls received by the ASU Police Department are from cellular phones.  It is important to be aware of your surroundings at all times.  Simply knowing the building name or a nearby landmark is sufficient enough to begin an emergency response.  

The ASU Police Department communications center is equipped with Enhanced 911 capabilities.  This means that when 911日本一本道a不卡免费 is dialed from a non-cellular phone, the system automatically provides the dispatcher with the caller’s phone number, address, building name and which emergency responders cover the area.  At the same time, this location is plotted onto a map.  Both of these are used in conjunction with the Computer Aided Dispatching (CAD) system, which is used to track calls for service, hazardous information and record previous incidents or contacts at that location.

The first 911 call was made in 1968.  Since that time, the system has evolved and incorporated new technology to keep our communities safe.  As of 2010, over 96% of the country is equipped with 911 service.  The 911日本一本道a不卡免费 technology, combined with the mapping and CAD technology, and supported through trained dispatch professionals provide the community with the most reliable systems available nationwide to assist in the event of an emergency.  

日本一本道a不卡免费The dispatchers are trained to ask a series of questions in order to determine the appropriate emergency response.  These questions may seem obvious or redundant to the caller, but they are necessary to ensure that the appropriate type of help is sent to the correct location.  The basic questions a dispatcher will ask include: who, what, where, how and why.  In an emergency, the dispatcher may take control of the call to obtain the most important information first.  Their primary goal is to keep everyone safe.  If the caller has a medical emergency, the dispatcher will transfer the caller to the fire department.  The fire department dispatcher will be able to provide medical instruction while the fire department and/or ambulance personnel are responding.  The police department will also have personnel respond to these types of calls as needed.

Stay on the line. If the dispatcher is unable to verify that there is no emergency, officers will be dispatched to check the location from which the call originated. 

Give the dispatcher as much information as possible about the location in which officers should respond.  If the information provided by the caller is completely different from what the 911日本一本道a不卡免费 and mapping systems show, the dispatcher will send officers to the location identified by the caller, and sometimes to both locations. 

日本一本道a不卡免费911 should be used only in emergency situations.  An emergency is one that requires an immediate response from a police officer, fire department or ambulance personnel.  Examples of this include: in-progress crimes, motor vehicle accidents, fires, hazardous material spills, serious medical conditions or injuries requiring an ambulance.  911 should not be used for information, directory assistance, loud noise complaints, or as a prank.  If 911 lines are used inappropriately, it potentially delays an emergency response for someone who is experiencing a true emergency.
