04/14/09 142 W, 1 I - + 10 - 16 Another Automobile Rescue / National Telecommunications Week

Speaking of extrications, this one made the media rounds last week. Florida woman calls 911. Car won't start. Gasp. Nothing electrical is working. Eek. Doors won't unlock. Help! The dispatcher asks if she can manually unlock the door. Grateful woman exits auto. Read the Orlando Sentinel story. Or listen to the 911 call. It's funny enough and not entirely embarrassing. Sit at a call-taking console for any length of time, and you'll hear people panicking in all sorts of situations.

And on the subject of our friends at the Communications Center, this week is National Telecommunications Week. Read the city press release that recognizes Kevin Anderson as the Raleigh-Wake Emergency Communciations Center Employee of the Year. Read all about the ECC in their annual report from 2008. The document is a little large, so wait several seconds for loading.

Pssssst….the link about the woman trapped in her car opens to a WRAL page about a dump truck accident!
