The Quincy/Adams County 9-1-1 Center
receives and dispatches calls for ambulance (EMS) service.
Callers play a very important role in the emergency medical
dispatch process. They hold the key to a wealth of information
and can help care for the sick or injured until EMTs and
paramedics arrive. EMTs and paramedics along with the 9-1-1
dispatcher rely upon the caller to provide crucial patient
information in order to provide efficient, appropriate care.
