911 Call: Updated

15 10 2007

ASL Video – Approx 1:38 Minutes Long

Grant discussed about 911 calls last month about not able to call 911 while you are on the road. He figures it is probably the next best thing is call police department’s front desk or non-emergency phone line. They can help you even it is not 911 calls.

This list based in Dallas & Fort Worth, Texas Police Department Directory – he got all information from http://local.google.com – hopefully these are good information; not outdated or old phone number.

If you live outside DFW area, get information from Google or look up your Yellow Page book. Again, he hope this suggestion will help you the ability to call for help real time thru relay service online such as instant messenger or standalone program with your Blackberry, Sidekick, Treo, etc.

Disclaimer: Use this list as your own risk – please select one that you live and call to confirm.

911 Call

21 09 2007

ASL Video – Approx 4:28 Minutes Long

Grant discussed about emergency 911 calls that he had bad experience from recent incident.

He mentioned that last week, he saw “hit and run” a car accidents near my house. He was ready to make 911 calls, but he could not do it – he has no way to call 911. Lucky he and neighbor stopped by their house and found out they knew about it.

He also talked about his two experiences with 911 calls.

He was mowing the front lawns during the day and saw a man hit by big branches when he is cutting the tree. (Elderly couple lives there) He ran into his house and makes 911 calls thru his TTY Modem – his only source to make calls. (He hardly used TTY machine for years) Unfortunately, he has difficult time reach 911 dispatcher center, then he ended up got TTY machine from a garage to make call. He was too late, someone already called.

Few years later, he saw small fire at a huge trash bins by public school. He was middle of nowhere except houses and school itself. He was ready to make 911 calls, but he really cannot call – it has to be TTY or voice. Five minutes later, another vehicle passed by and called 911 right away.

Again, he was disappointed; he cannot even make simple 911 calls from his cell phone. (Whether it is Blackberry, Sidekick or Treo), He expressed, we should have an alternative such as emergency call thru emails, AIM or SMS. How can we make it possible? Do we have this kind service in another area already?
