This series by the Poughkeepsie Journal investigates the varying response times for ambulances to arrive at the scene of a medical emergency. By performing a data analysis of each county's 911 calls, the story identified other factors of slow response time, including location and availability of volunteers. Farmer recommends that other journalists interested in performing a similar investigation to "visit dispatch call centers in order to become familiar with how these calls are handled and dispatched."
