When 911 is dialed in the Anchorage area, the call is answered at the Anchorage Police Department. When a call comes in, it is determined by the police department whether it is a police call for help or medical. If the call is medical or fire in nature with no police needed assistance, the call is immediately sent to secondary dispatch centers.
“We try not to waste any time getting units going,” lead dispatcher at Fire Station 12, Stephanie Wolf said. “When we get a phone call, the way it rings lets us know if it’s a 911 call. It will also say something specific in the corner of our computer screen.”
