9-1-1 Works Fine, FDNY Says, After Taking Over 40 Minutes to Find Brooklyn New School

Maybe they should try Google Maps.
 The reason an injured child was left without an ambulance for 40+ minutes at the Brooklyn New School at Rapelye and Hicks Streets, FDNY says, was because this intersection can be found on both sides of the Brooklyn Queens Expressway.

It took seven frantic phone calls before emergency workers finally reached the child.

NY1 reports: "The fire department says it will make a note of the school's location to avoid confusion in the future, but that confirming addresses on a map in general is not part of the city's 911 protocol."

Nope, don't see any problem here.
