“Nobody knows what the possibilities are if 911 could have came," Kerby said. "But the end result is the same and that's that Baby Angel isn't with us."
The county's 911 director Dave Sleeter said that day they received an overwhelming amount of calls to dispatchers, primarily people reporting firework complaints.
“The next day, I learned it was mostly fireworks calls. Non-emergencies. That just infuriated me, because real emergencies, of life and death, were not able to get through. All because someone’s sleep was inconvenienced,” Kerby said.
The 911 center says that they are running a "traffic study" to see if any improvements can be made at their center.
