The city of Dunwoody is still struggling with slow ambulance response times.

 

Records show an upward trend in response times to life threatening calls over the past four months in Dunwoody.

 

This comes a year after the metro Atlanta suburb declared an "EMS State of Emergency."

If you have an emergency and need to call 9-1-1, how soon do you want to help to arrive? ASAP is likely your answer.

 

In the city of Dunwoody, ambulance response times were a hotly contested subject last spring after a number of calls were not handled promptly.

Texting the 911 number during an emergency is now an option for several metro Atlanta residents.

Last week Sandy Springs, Johns Creek, Dunwoody, and Brookhaven announced new texting programs for the 911 emergency service. The new feature is aimed at making communication easier for those with hearing and speech disabilities or for emergency situations where a voice call is not an option.
