-An updated map was rolled out to all users. AVL recommendations have been switched back to drive time. At the recommendation of the EMS Council, an additional three minutes is being added to Cecil and New Castle County EMS units to account for the inherent delay in dispatching out-of-county units. Additional data is being gathered for the EMS Council to make a recommendation on additional, if any, delays for Delaware County.
