Even though dispatchers can see the location information of where you’re calling from, sometimes the caller is not at the location of the emergency! That’s why dispatchers will always ask you to confirm the location. Emergency Crews have a much quicker response time if they have the proper information.
In addition, dispatchers will ask for a description of the situation. This is to ensure that adequate resources are responding to the emergency. The Dispatcher will also provide important instructions to ensure the safety of callers.
