To start I am going to say this. I know that dispatching is a hard and stressful job. Now with that said. Why is it so hard for a dispatcher to press one more button when they are paging. We have been having problems in our county with dispatchers not paging out QRS units. They have a fancy CAD system that pops up who's district etc so it shouldn't be that difficult. It has gotten so bad here lately that we have to call the center to be paged out to calls in our district. I have been told on some calls by the dispatcher "It doesnt sound too bad, so I didnt page you" Since when are dispatchers certified to make such decisions. Last time I checked the only requirement here is on the job training and emd training, I didn't see DR or Paramedic as requirements. Any suggestions to help remedy this would greatly be appreciated. I have already spoken with the county emergency manager and the county ems assn and so far nobody has gotten any results. I am not one to normally complain but when we are getting citizen complaints about us not responding what am I to do. Will it take a delay by the dispatcher to kill someone before something changes?
