ND - 911 glitch in county phone lines scares worker

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread

By Dave Olson The Forum - 04/19/2001 Jayne Gilbertson was with a client Tuesday when the woman she was talking to was suddenly gripped by a seizure and fell to the floor.

Gilbertson, an advocate in the Clay County Crime Victim Advocacy Program, rushed to the woman’s side, telling a co-worker to dial 911 to summon an ambulance.

What followed, Gilbertson said, was a disconcerting moment of confusion.

The reason: a glitch that has existed for years that causes 911 calls made from certain county properties to show up wrong on dispatch screens.
