County to have 3-digit emergency code
By MICHAEL WADE
Orange County residents will soon be
Me to get emergency rescue, fire or la
enforcement aid by dialing only three
digits on their telephones.
As soon as a new consolidated
communications system for the county is
installed, residents will be able to dial 91 1
to reach a dispatcher who can send an
appropriate emergency vehicle to any
location in the county.
Flo Garrett, public coordinator of the
Emergency Medical Service Council,
which has supervised the project's
implementation in Orange County, said
recently that the new system will provide
more efficient emergency service to the
Garrett explained that better service
will result from a combination of three
features: quick citizen access because
only the one three-digit number will have
to be remembered; a team of trained
dispatchers who will operate out of a
central dispatcher's room equipped with
three consoles at the Chapel Hill Police
Department; and a new telemetry system
which will enable ambulance crews
trained in mobile intensive care to
provide more effective treatment to
patients before they reach the hospital.
Garrett said she hopes the equipment
for all three phases of the system can be
tested and installed by Jan. 1. However,
she emphasized that the target date is
Garrett gave a report on the project at
the Chapel Hill Board of Aldermen
meeting Monday night.

The Carrboro Board of Aldermen
voted unanimously last week to accept
the system if it is approved by Chapel Hill
and the county. Apparently, approval is
little more than a formality, since Garrett
said the equipment has already been
bought and partially installed.
The project will be operated solely by
Orange County, even though the
dispatchers will work in an enlarged,
console-equipped room in the Chapel
Hill Police Department Building. Eleven
dispatchers will be hired and paid by the
First preference for dispatching jobs
will go to dispatchers already working for
the Chapel Hill and Carrboro police
departments and the Sheriffs
Department, Garrett said.
The dispatchers will be trained in use of
emergency medicine and in
familiarization with their territories.
Three dispatchers will work each shift.
Garrett said the dispatchers will be able
to give advice over the phone for
treatments of some patients before
emergency vehicles arrive. She added that
part of their training may include field
training with emergency vehicle crews.
Garrett said the installation of
telemetry equipment for communication
between ambulances and N.C. Memorial
Hospital is another important part of the
project. She said that with the new
equipment, ambulance crews will be able
to communicate with doctors at the
hospital. The new equipment also will
enable doctors at the hospital to read
cardiograms and other data from the
ambulances and advise treatment.
Garrett said such a system will greatly

patients such as heart attack victims.
Garrett said another part of the 911
telephone system which will be added
later is the ringback feature. The ringback
would mean that if a caller failed to give a
dispatcher all necessary information
before hanging up, the dispatcher would
be able to call him back immediately.
Garrett said Southern Bell Telephone
Co. has promised this feature will be
available by 1981.
Garrett said the project began several
years ago when Memorial Hospital and
the Orange rescue squad wanted to
improve communications. The
Emergency Medical Service Council
received a Robert Wood Johnson grant
. to fund the project. Orange and Chatham
counties received the grant jointly.
Chatham County is also installing an
emergency communications system.
UNC, British teams debate
porn vs. censorship
By ELIZABETH MESSICK
A touring British debate team and two
members of the UNC Debate Team will
argue the merits of pornography and
censorship at 8 p.m. today in the Great Hall
of the Carolina Union.
The British debaters, whom UNC
forensics director Bill Balthrop termed the
best in Great Britain, will face David
Williams and Walker Smith, UNC debaters
ranked 13th in the nation last year.
Balthrop said students could expect
something a mite different from the British
"There's a certain eloquence the British
bring to debate," Balthrop said. "It's a
different sort of speaking opportunity than
people in Chapel H ill normally hear, It's very
witty and humorous and involves a lot of
audience participation and interaction." .

Oxford, and Philip Engelman, a graduate of
University College in London, are the British

The CCNC's arguments against nuclear power
are based on skepticism about the ability to store

prices for nuclear-produced electricity.
No nuclear wastes have been permanently

said that the wastes cannot remain at the planti
"IF THEY'V E been looking for a way to store
wastes for 30 years and still haven't found one yet,

companies say the cost of nuclear power it 1 1 mills
(l.l cents) per kilowatt, at opposed to 1 J mills per

The price charged for nuclear power, however,
will need to include the cost of transporting and

storage. Sharp says.

included, the cost of nuclear power will be more
like $0 mills per kilowatt," she says. "If it will really
cost that much, is it right for our children to have
to pay for this?"

as we do and lives just fine," she says. "In this
