I am waiting for the Aide to come back and test the new LifeLine system they have put in place for us. The other system it could take as long as ten minutes before anyone responded. I would just dial 911 myself. Boston, like most major cities have what is called a 911E system. The E stands for Enhanced. It means that when you dial 911 your address, name and other pertinent info immediately shows up on the dispatcher's screen as soon as their phone rings and they answer. My information tells the dispatcher that I have a heart condition and am elderly. This new system they are giving us, means that LifeLine will dial 911 automatically and call me at the same time.
