I know this is an old, OLD thread and I'm sure by this time Joel has resolved this problem. I just wanted to take a moment to point something out. Specifically about calling 911. When you reach the operator some people think they talk to much, take to long, or talk to slowly. While some people seem think nothing happens until hang up what actually happens is the moment the operator gets the location and problem it's handed off to a dispatcher who immediately sends an engine company. Meanwhile the operator is getting as much info from you as possible which can be relayed to the unit in route.
