Tips on calling in em e r g e n c ies given PENN YAN — Sheriff Jan Scofield of Yates Ckjunty is reminding all citizens of certain proper procedures to use when calling in an emergency. 'lYie sheriff says, “The time to familiarize yourself with emer­ gency call-in procedures is now. Waiting for an emergency to hap­ pen before learning how to handle one can lead to danger.” “The very first step in preparing for an emergency is to make sure that you have all emergency phone numbers and information readily accessible near the tele­ phone,” the sheriff notes. Num­ bers included should be the num­ bers of the sherifi' and fire de­ partments, physician and the nearest poison control center. Also, the officer handling the call can help by offering interim advice over the phone or by call­ ing on other agencies that might be needed, such as ambulances, rescue squads, or fire department. The easiest way to give direc­ tions, Sheriff Scofield says, is to give the street name and house number. Landmarks and cross­ streets can also be helpful to the officer. It is very important that a caller be specific. “Currently Yates County does not have an emergency 911 sys­ tem, so do not dial 911 in case of an emergency,” the sheriff stres- “There are four important facts needed by your law enforcement agency when you do call: name, telephone number, nature of call, and the location,” .says Sheriff Scofield. “Time is very crucial,” he stres­ ses. “Agencies try to be fast and efficient, but they need the citizens’cooperation.” Presently county officials are working with the sheriff in study­ ing the feasibility of establishing a county-wide 911 system. “An emergency can occur anytime,” Scofield says and “in order for your sheriff to serve you best, there must be public preparation and cooperation,\ he concludes. BlRTks The dispatcher needs the cal­ ler’s name and phone number in case there is a need to call back to confirm calls or receive better directions. The deputy must know what the nature of the call is for his or her own safety, says the sheriff, noting that “law enforcement per­ sonnel must know of inherent danger in an emergency situation before they arrive a t the site.” A son, Ryan Andrew, weighing 6 pounds, 3 ounces, was bom Oct. 27, 1990, and was a^pted by Andy and Sandi (Bosch) Siwak of Himrod, on Oct. 31,1990.
