City of Longmont 911 Dispatcher Recruitment

Jefferson County Emergency Telephone Service Authority Public Service Announcement

This is a PSA advising people that when they call 9-1-1, they need to tell the 9-1-1 Operator where they are. A caller’s location is not always reported to the 9-1-1 Call Center, or reporting of the address may be delayed. When seconds count, 9-1-1 Operators also need to confirm that the address or location reported by the 9-1-1 System is correct so that First Responders don’t waste time going to the wrong address.

Jefferson County Emergency Telephone Service Authority Public Service Announcement

This is a PSA advising people that “when in doubt, call 9-1-1.” While frivolous calls are discouraged, Public Safety Authorities don’t want to question someone when they have a legitimate concern. Sometimes people avoid or delay calling 9-1-1 because they think something might be wrong, but aren’t sure. They don’t want to bother anyone because it “may be nothing.” This is particularly true of senior citizens. However, if it’s not “nothing,” and if something is wrong, the delay in calling 9-1-1 and getting help could make the problem more serious. If you think something is wrong, call 9-1-1. The 9-1-1 Operator will help you figure out if it’s something to be concerned about, and may send First Responders to check it out. That’s what the 9-1-1 Operator and First Responders are there for.

When in doubt, Call 9-1-1! It’s better to be safe than sorry.
