When I was there NYS was just switching all 911 calls in our area to our County 911 center even those in the City. NYS had never kept up with their equipment and were not Phaze 2 complaint. They had switched several calls to me that we no where near my City, because they were not trained properly and wanted to ditch calls off ASAP.

Just remember, someday your family member may need to use 911 and guess what, It may not be working properly. THINK ABOUT IT.

As much as agree with the first part of this, I can not and will not support anything that supports new taxes. We have more than enough stolen from us by all levels of government already.
