The Race To An Emergency traces the path of a 911 call in Oakland, California. As we explore the inner-workings of this vital public service, we also aim to answer a bigger question about the emergency response system: does it serve all Oaklanders equally? The Race To An Emergency was honored with the 2014 National Edward R. Murrow award for best radio news documentary in a large market. It also won several other national and local awards.
