technology created to speed up 911 response times. kpix 5's anne makovec is live in our newsroom on the power outage that gave the city little choice but to act. >> reporter: you expect that when you dial 911 you will get immediate attention but that's not always the case. san francisco has been short 911 dispatchers for some time but it became very apparent last month when a massive power outage cut off electricity from around 90,000 homes and businesses. that was april 21 and that morning, there were only a dozen dispatchers on duty to handle hundreds of calls, situations from people stuck in elevators to typical medical emergencies. so in response to being overwhelmed that day, the agency is hiring more dispatchers. here's a look at some of the numbers. san francisco received more than 1.2 million emergency and nonemergency calls per year. that's an average of more than 3400 calls per day. for the past 6 years, the agency has experienced a 37%
6:07 am
increase in call volume. during tonight's fire commission meeting we are going to learn about a new computer program that will help dispatchers send the closest medics to emergencies. right now, they use a map that shows the location of ambulances and then a computer program relies on where a medic reports for duty over a radio. this new technology will locate ambulances by gps and then calculate how long it will take them to respond. they are testing it and will roll it out in the next few weeks. live in the newsroom, anne makevoc, kpix 5. >> so what happens when you call 911 and all of the dispatchers are busy? >> it just rings. you can imagine how terrifying that is when seconds count depending on your emergency. during the outage, last month 500 calls to 911 were abandoned meaning the caller gave up before a dispatcher answered. the head of the dispatchers union said, quote, good luck with an earthquake. >> thank you. later today there will be a

sexual harassment by boys. middle school girls described tradition at schools where every friday boys would try to slam their bottoms. the proposal aims to change the culture and train staff to recognize and respond to these problems. >> in the old policy there was a line that said, if you knowingly lie about saying that you were harassed, then we're going to penalize you. and by putting that front and center in the old policy, that would have a chilling effect particularly for girls who are already discriminated against by adults to think that, well, how would i know that you're going to trust me? so start from a place of trust. >> the policy would also require each school to have designated staff members to respond to these sexual assault and sexual harassment reports. right now all of those reports go to one person at the district office. at the moment it seems this policy has support. i talked to many people.
