When seconds count . . .

The police are minutes away.

    DC Metro just encrypted all their radio traffic too, which is generally a good indicator of an agency with problems.

    @Calvin that’s an interesting correlation, kinda makes sense, but from my perspective as a programmer I find the prevalent lack of encryption surprising.

    Is it as simple as traffic and congestion? Or is it a matter of leadership and motivation? Are the fire department and ambulance response times showing similar trends?

    There is readily available technology. Transponders that will turn all traffic lights in favor of emergency vehicles. The only time I have spent in DC was in the vicinity of the monuments. From what I have seen televised, it would appear the residential section is congested.

    If it is not actually a physical reason for slow response times, then it is time for the citizens of DC to vote the incompetent. And for Pete’s sake, get a licensed dealer available so that law abiding citizens can defend themselves.

    I have called 911 4 times in the last 5 or so years in 4 towns in 2 states and the police response time in each case was 20-25 minutes. That is no criticism of the cops. I’m sure it’s just how long it takes to get from where they are to where they need to be.
    Plan accordingly.

    I remember eating in an out of the way seafood restaurant in Gulf Shores Alabama, one with a number of pick up trucks in a gravel parking lot. At the checkout counter there was a picture of a revolver on the wall with the words underneath: “We don’t dial 911.”

    I have called 911 twice in the last six months. The first for for Paramedic/EMT help for a co-worker and the second for police for a woman banging on my door for help in the middle of the night. Both response times were five minutes or less.

    Yea, I didn’t catch on until i read “…including Chief Charles H. Ramsey, were not available to comment on the statistics”

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
