Traduction en anglais : Analysis of telephone calls placed to Fire Brigade, Emergency Medical Services, and General Practitioners' Emergency Services in an emergency medical service system.
There is no doubt that a single emergency phone number is desirable, but in contrast to other countries, in Germany different emergency phone numbers and dispatching centers exist for the fire brigade (FB), the emergency medical service system (EMS), and the general practitioners'emergency service (GPS).
Due to this fact, valuable time is often wasted by connecting or transferring emergency calls from one dispatching center to another.
The purpose of this study was to analyse all calls received by the different dispatching centers in the city and county area of Mainz with respect to total number, fraction of emergency calls, and specificity.
