crosowich is incorrect. I agree with jmb. jmb was calm on the tape i heard. the protocol was lousy. the operator did a poor job of collecting relevant information and hearing information. the second operator was slightly better. crosowich's comment is uncalled for because he was not there. I understand people were dropping like flies in the restaurant and there is an EMS station across the street so had the operator pulled the address, help would have arrived faster. and yes they needed to be prepared with the right meds, etc. jmb gave name, contact and information.
Call EMS crosowich - they were not getting information. the operator was rude. rude is when you interrupt. he was vomiting so yes, he was breathing. if this is the best that we can do, under a biological attack, we will be dead before this operator gets the location. time how long it took both operators.
jmb listened and answered. she could not understand the address - she asked it twice. she asked the name twice. come on now. look it up EVOO. look up fairview road.
the number one issue is not chest pain and people are not vomiting from food with chest pain. the number one issue is probably crime. next time jmb should yell "gunshots, people are dying" and maybe that will speed the process up from 30 some seconds.
jmb SAID he has not heard from Wake County since the day after. Read wral.com. They DID SOLVE THE CASE. Wake county said it was the restaurant but WRAL found the source. WRAL crosowich not Wake County. read the facts. yes, in this case the reporter solved and it is not acceptable for wake county not to call the victims back at all. i vote intelligence and in this case WRAL had it.
wake county did not perform well, did not solve the issue. It is all on wral. read it. stop acting snippy with a victim of an incident unless you were there or have all of the facts. and at a minimum, read the facts.
I agree with jmb. There is a procedure Crosawich and it was poorly followed, slow, repitive.
jmb was very calm and according to people who were there, she was caring for the whole crowd single-handedly. The operator was barely able to get information and she/he has a screen where they can pull location and phone number so asking it over and over is not productive. Next time jmb, you need to yell "Gunshots, People are dying" The second caller had a bad experience - what is with the get a difbirilator and have it on hand. If either of these stupid operators were to walk anyone through CPR, I would be frightened. Not possible.
Crasawich - there is an EMS station across from the damn restaurant and there is electronic data which says where the place is. EMS shows up with INFORMATION. In this case, I am told the EMS did not know what was going on and did NOT have the meds needed for the cramping with dehydration. DUH. Jmb listened and answered questions but the dumb operator asked the same thing over and over.
Good job jmb! Go get them. It was a miserable performance. "You were given ample time to describe the problem." can you hear crosawich - she was interrupted and given no time to say what happened or was happening with others.
Who the heck cares what the number one call is -- and on a friday night, it is probably gang related. Jmb knew there was no chest pain she knew it was vomiting.
And dumb butt it has been a MONTH not a DAY AND WAKE COUNTY HAS CALLED NO VICTIMS AT ALL SINCE THE DAY AFTER. The reporter figured it out. Read the Wral. com site and call Wake County. Get your facts. WRAL CALLED WAKE COUNTY WITH WHAT HAPPENED AND THAT IS HOW IT WAS DISCOVERED.WAKE COUNTY WAS CONTENDING IT WAS THE RESTAURANT. YOU ARE A BLOWHARD Crosawich.
Get a life and read the issue and get off people's backs when you were not there and have no facts. I agree with the assessment that Wake County failed.
