TRACY, Calif. (CBS13) ― Tracy residents will now have to pay every time they call 9-1-1 for a medical emergency.
But there are a couple of options. Residents can pay a $48 voluntary fee for the year which allows them to call 9-1-1 as many times as necessary.
PID COMMENT: How much sense does this make? Isn’t there a 9-1-1 tax levied on most phone bills? If that revenue isn’t enough to fund the system, then nudge it up a bit. And start fining those people who abuse the system by calling to complain about fast food service, etc. Hint: If you live in Tracy, California, it might be time to move.
