The Waiting Is the Hardest Part
A Lake County, Indiana, 911 dispatcher has been disciplined for telling a caller no medics were available and he'd have to wait. The caller had reported his friend had passed out at a fitness club and when told no medics were available said he'd take him to the hospital. The dispatcher offered no further assistance. Officials said there was a fire station just across the street from the gym and the dispatcher should have transferred the call there.
