Who is calling and who is involved?

The 9-1-1 call taker will request your name.  You may request to remain anonymous but the information is helpful if the emergency responders are unable to locate the emergency upon arrival.  The 9-1-1 call taker also needs to know if other parties are involved and if so, may request names, descriptions, or extent of injuries.  All of this information is important to be sure that an appropriate emergency response is sent.
