Dispatcher phone lines will be a separate system supported by a backup in Owasso.
Dispatcher will have up-to-date computer equipment and radio systems adding tools to match training efforts.
The employees will continue training including emergency response certification, which provide callers with real time answers to common medical concerns.
The dispatcher will use a transcript to deal with the issues including instructions to help caller provide assistance prior to the moment EMS can arrive.
The dispatchers will be able to provide CPR and other critical medical care directions once certified.
