The Millington Police Department Communications // Jailers Division has 9 Dispatcher//Jailers and one supervisor providing emergency response dispatch for the police department. The dispatchers/jailers answer all 911 and non-emergency calls, as well as all inmates. Dispatchers must know where the police officers are at all times while handling the jail at the same time. Each dispatcher//jailer has to have 40 hours of jail in-service training every year.
An emergency is any situation that requires immediate assistance from the police, fire department or ambulance. Examples include:
A crime, especially if in progress
A car crash, especially if someone is injured
A medical emergency, such as someone who is unconscious, gasping for air or not breathing, experiencing an allergic reaction, having chest pain, having uncontrollable bleeding, or any other symptoms that require immediate medical attention
When you call 911, be prepared to answer the call-taker’s questions, which may include:
The location of the emergency, including the street address
The phone number you are calling from
The nature of the emergency
Details about the emergency, such as a physical description of a person who may have committed a crime, a description of any fire that may be burning, or a description of injuries or symptoms being experienced by a person having a medical emergency
Remember, the call-taker’s questions are important to get the right kind of help to you quickly. Be prepared to follow any instructions the call-taker gives you.
Many 911 centers can tell you exactly what to do to help in an emergency until help arrives, such as providing step-by-step instructions to aid someone who is choking or needs first aid or CPR.
Finally, do not hang up until the call-taker instructs you to. If you dial 911 by mistake, or if a child in your home dials 911 when no emergency exists, do not hang up—that could make 911 officials think that an emergency exists, and possibly send responders to your location. Instead, simply explain to the call-taker what happened.
