One call in the sample was made by someone inside the school. The rest of the calls were made by people relaying second or third-hand information.

BSO operates the Regional 911 system that is maintained by Broward County. Coral Springs is not part of the regional system and operates its own separate center.

While 911 operators are obtaining information from callers, they are simultaneously updating the dispatchers via the computer-aided dispatch system in order to disseminate that data to deputies on scene.
