Thank you for printing in the paper for the public to call 911 instead of driving to the fire station. Also, thanks for stating why! People do not realize that we are not always here. If people follow this it will save lives.
Monte Vista, who provides fire/medical dispatch for Borrego Springs, has trained Emergency Medical Dispatchers. This means that while emergency vehicles are responding to the emergency, the dispatcher is trained to guide the caller in providing first aid and CPR.
Very Truly Yours,
