Fecht said the department tweeted its calls for 24 hours in April 2011 and got a positive response from the community. This time, Fecht estimates officers could respond to 150 emergency calls on Black Friday.
So what if someone faints after finding a great bargain at Perimeter Mall? Don’t worry, Fecht says. Emergency crews will be on the way as soon as the 911 call is placed. Shift supervisors won’t be tweeting until every call has been handled.
“We’re doing this with the public’s safety in mind and our safety in mind,” Fecht said. “It’s just to show people how much we’re actually doing.”
