If you’ve ever picked up the phone to call 9-1-1, you or someone else probably needed help. Badly. And you probably assumed that after dialing those three numbers, help would come screeching around the corner, lights and sirens blaring.

Well, the residents of East and West Oakland say that depends on where you live.  In this special hour-long KALW documentary, “The Race to an Emergency” host Martina Castro and reporter Ali Budner trace the path of a 9-1-1 call in Oakland: from the dispatchers to the emergency responders. And they consider how geography and demographics figure into a crisis that has been brewing in Oakland for decades.

Hear Here producers are once again venturing out to both Oakland and San Francisco libraries-and we want you to come and share your stories! We're bringing our microphones to record your memories, tales, and favorite personal stories. Bring a loved one, bring a few friends, or come by yourself-your stories will be featured online, and may air on 91.7FM!

  

On the next Your Call,we’ll talk about how schools are dealing with discipline. Every year, 400,000 students in California are suspended, while another 18,000 are expelled. New methods of discipline avoid suspension and expulsion, including one Oakland program called Restorative Justice.  If you’re a teacher, administrator, student, or parent, what is your experience of school discipline? Join us at 10am Pacific Time or post a comment here. What really works?  And what is the overall goal? It’s Your Call with Hana Baba, and you.
