Never seen this before. Do they mean get the city to ring residents?

Yes, Dec.  Reverse 911 allows the government to call landline customers in a designated area to disseminate emergency information . . . in this case an evacuation order.

Didn't get home until 5PM CST, but you are usually right on! Think the s/c engines were 51 (26) and 41 (4). 51 was working so 7 went. It was getting a little hectic there.

Also in NYC the Dispatchers can give emergency instructions to civilians in the street over an ERS Box...that is if the Boxes are working.

Chief . . . does that mean the dispatchers can use the ERS boxes as a makeshift public address system even if they have not been pulled?
