Emergency pool phones present a different kind of emergency for our communications center. As the case in this video, our dispatchers deal with many drownings and potential drownings. As you can see, our Kings III dispatcher remained calm in a tense situation, inquiring pertinent information about the occurrence and dictating the next steps that needed to be taken.

Something that we really pride ourselves on is the extra care that our dispatchers pay in every situation asked of them. The demonstration of this is clear in this video. Once the dispatcher had sent help, he did not hang up, although technically his job was done. He remained on the emergency pool phone line, continuing to state instructions in order to provide all safety assistance that he could.

With the high frequency of calls to 911 dispatch centers, in many cases, the extra care and instruction provided on the telephone is simply not something they would be able to do. Kings III fills the gap by providing the care each individual observes. In addition to this, if our dispatchers deal with an emergency, they are able to verify the event of an emergency to 911 call centers, therefore placing that emergency in a higher priority spot. Through the emergency pool phone, we are able to assess the situation, provide medical and emergency assistance and dispatch the proper help as quickly as possible.

When it comes to your emergency pool phone, it’s simply as the video states: what if it were your loved one? Your residents’ safety is in your hands.
