it would not help even if the operator sent the units straight away. but this is what people get for f**king things up. if half of all calls received were pranks you get no service in emergencies. a case of a boy who cried wolf.
it's a case of a population sleeping in the bed they made themselves. operators of 911 need to be serious but also need to warn the callers about the misuse of the services. maybe a coordination of systems should be in check. a caller needs to identify themselves with a cedula number, name and additional data with all operators being able to immediately check in the system that such person exists, where do they live and so on.
Why don't they make 911 call cost 100 pesos? It will solve the problem immediately.
Good idea.there could be a system in place that will charge the 100 as soon as more minutes are put in. ha ha ha. imagine those petty a**holes making 20 prank calls about the lack of beer, pizza and toto and then crying like babies when every single peso they put in the phone in the future goes directly to 911.
Prank calls will never stop. But it can be controlled.
