My experience as a technology volunteer with Fire/EMS for Miami Township, Clermont County, Ohio revealed many issues that can slow a rapid response by first responders. Eventually everyone will call 9-1-1 for help. The 9-1-1 Communication Center are highly skilled at the technical aspects of responding to your request for help. However, often they are not able to perform at their maximum because of a lack of preparation on our part, the public. You can cause, Less Stress, Faster Response and Better Efficiency.

Completing the steps on this website can enhance the 9-1-1 response, increase everyone's safety, and build a more successful partnership for both.

Background: Lee Hite is a retired  Electronics Engineer for 24 years in the high-tech world. For the past 33 years he has been involved with emergency services. He was a technology volunteer at the Fire/EMS Department in Miami Township, Clermont County, Ohio and emergency services in Warren County, Ohio.

He was a FEMA responder for the 2004 hurricanes in Florida, President of the Clermont County Citizen Corps, President of the Clermont County Citizens Emergency Response Team. In addition, he was also an active member of the Clermont County Medical Reserve Corps and the Tri-State County Animal Response Team. He is author of the software program Look-It-Up that runs on emergence service vehicles in numerous jurisdictions.

Lee received the annual Safety and Justice Award from Clermont 20/20, recognition from the US Congress, the Ohio House of Representatives along with the Citizen Award for Commendation Of Public Service from The Board of County Commissioners, Clermont County. In addition, he has been an Amateur Radio Operator (K8CLI) for the past 60 years and President of the Regional Engineers and Scientists of Cincinnati.

The suggestions made here are just that - suggestions. This information is NOT to be regarded as advice for medical, law enforcement, firefighting or any other responder issue. They are MY observations. I suggest you take a look at these easy actions and consider implementing them. While I offer specific recommendations, you should always check first with the local 9-1-1 center, the Fire/EMS departments about their specific requirements.

I have nothing for sale, I do not seek sponsorships and I am not seeking donations. You can contact me at email. I appreciate your feedback.


Thank You!
