9-1-1 Emergency Service and Medical Dispatch

The City of Farmington Hillsí 9-1-1 center is located in the Communications Section of the Police Department and is operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Communications Section personnel are specially trained in expediting emergency response through the use of sophisticated call taking and computer-aided dispatch equipment. In addition, 9-1-1 operators are skilled in the techniques of Emergency Medical Dispatching. They have been trained to provide potentially life-saving medical advice, such as the application of CPR or choking-victim techniques, via telephone, to callers before the arrival of emergency units.

Department policy requires that emergency operators, who determine that an incoming 9-1-1 call is not an emergency, instruct the caller to re-dial on a non-emergency phone line and terminate the connection.  Use of the 9-1-1 system is reserved, in general, to report a serious crime in progress or one that just occurred, or a life threatening situation such as a medical emergency, fire, or car accident involving personal injury.
