If there is either a fire or a medical emergency
Dial (516) 482-5000 for help
The Vigilant Dispatcher takes down information such as name, address, and telephone number. He also records any information relevant to the fire or medical emergency.
He inputs this information into the computer aided dispatch system. This will automatically give him cross streets, hydrant locations, and any other important information we have stored about the location.
He immediately notifies Vigilant Fire Company members by voice pagers, which alert them to an emergency situation.
The Members hear the message over their pagers, and respond to the location of the emergency.
