This partnership is giving people an inside look into things they have never seen before and new knowledge on how to deal with potential future situations. The first episode this week showed the behind the scenes world of the Emergency Communications Center, what people more commonly call the 911 dispatch center, in the city. These are the people who take the calls when people are in a serious emergency and need help, whether that be medical help or help from the fire department or the police department. These are the rescue hero teams that help so many.
