Dear Ms. Coleman,

Have you ever heard the song, “911 is a joke”? My sympathy goes out to you and I hope you’ve recovered from whatever health issue that forced you to call 911 at 7pm tonight. Unfortunately, due to the incompetency of Prince Georges County, MD at around 7:15pm the medics arrived at my house thinking it was 4000_____Lane, instead of 9000_______ Lane and had the nerve to ask if there was anyone in Apartment 410 even though my house is clearly a LARGE single family house. The two streets are no where near each other so I’m not sure where the screw up occured.

As a recent resident of Prince Georges County, I have definitely had my fair share of run-ins with the lackluster customer service and incompetency of their public servants. Good old County Executive Jack Johnson, although he has been in office for quite some time, really should worry less about the completion of the National Harbor area in Fort Washington, and more about the emergency system in the county.
In closing, Ms. Coleman, I hope you eventually received the help you reached out for, without any further complications.

    LOL! Never had that problem in the wonderful county of Montgomery. Folks complain that it’s more expensive but you get what you pay for. FYI- Mo Co. & PG Co. have the same local tax rate of 3.2%… Poor Ms.Coleman.

    I used to work in emergency management and I can tell you that an emergency call can go wrong on sooo many levels. Operator/fire department/EMTs/drivers, etc. If even one of those is not given the correct information, the callee is screwed. I hope everything turned out ok for that woman.

    d&s- LOL @ wonderful Mont. County…I like Mont. County also, but as far as realestate goes, it’s a killer out there! I’m definitely hoping Ms. Coleman got the help she needed!

    lola gets: I can only imagine the issues that could/would come into play and the possible tragedies that could follow!
