9-1-1 dispatchers at the Lycoming County Communications Center get emergency calls every day. Some of the calls involve helping people with disabilities. That's why Roads to Freedom Center for Independent Living in Williamsport decided to create a survey, so first responders are prepared for any situation they might walk into. "We wanted to make sure that anybody that was a resident in Lycoming County would have an opportunity to disclose some information if they wanted to," said Karen Starr, Advocacy Coordinator at Roads to Freedom Center For Independent Living. Karen Starr approached the emergency management and homeland security department at Penn College last year for assistance on how to start the process.
