Why am I asked so many questions when I call 9-1-1?
Dispatchers are trained to try to get as much information as possible to best determine the nature of the problem and its seriousness. When you make an emergency call, the dispatcher has already sent the information to the officer who is on the way while asking additional questions of you.
