Perhaps the system can prompt the caller to briefly summarize the issue before connecting them?

"I can't remember whether the anode is the short or long leg on an LED" would make people unconcerned if the caller hung up. 

Conversely, "There's some strange guy with a chainsaw" as the message would leave a different impression if the caller didn't respond. 

(I've never called or answered 311, so I'm just speculating)
