The Bagdad area will be switching to the 911 system February 8th at 09:00! The advantage of this is callers receive pre-arrival instructions from an Emergency Medical Dispatcher certified call taker and triple location verification through ANI/ALI, satellite imagery GPS location, and cell tower triangulation.
The state-of-the-art computer aided dispatch software allows for cell phone tracking, radio channel merging, and reverse 911. This alarm room is staffed with a minimum of 11 dispatchers at all times. These dispatchers receive 13 weeks of training and are all compliant with NFPA 1720: Standard for Organization and Deployment of Fire Suppression Operations.
Questions can be directed to the Bagdad Fire Station’s non-emergency number 928.633.6590.
