9-1-1 Service in Hawaii County: who responds, what should we know?

When you are on Hawaii Island and call 9-1-1, who responds?  It’s Hawaii County Fire Department, the only department in the state that handles not just fires but also search and rescue, lifeguard service, and 9-1-1 response.  Fire Department Medical Director Dr. Judy Fitzgerald (also head of Hilo Medical Center Emergency Department), Battalion Chief Lance Uchida, Captain Chris Honda, and Captain Vern Hara join host Sherry Bracken.
