In celebration of Thanksgiving, in memory of those turkeys that laid their lives down for our dinner, and the associated binge of unabashed consumerism while bashing the other person trying to snatch the same deal, I am offering my ebook You Called 9-1-1 For What? on Amazon for FREE from Thanksgiving through Black Friday. I’m doing this as a public safety measure, to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to get a copy. I don’t want anyone to get injured or suffer from trying to get the ebook.
Here is an excerpt from You Called 9-1-1 For What? in the off chance you haven’t heard of it during my multi-blog/Facebook/Twitter campaign:
After hearing this 9-1-1 call that came out of Kissimmee, Florida in 2009, I have since added the ability to unlock the vehicle manually to my list of skills required to work in EMS:
Operator: What’s the nature of your emergency?
Caller: I’m at the corner of Pleasantview and John Young Parkway, I’m in a Walgreens parking lot and my car will not start. I’m locked inside my car. I cannot open my car. I can’t get the windows down. Nothing electrical works… and it’s getting very hot in here and I’m not feeling well. I need some help.
Operator: Jus… just… are you able to pull the lock up on the door and open the door? You should be able to pull the lock up even if it is electrical.
Caller: I’m trying… oh… okay okay I got that going okay.
Operator: So are you able to get out the car now?
Caller: Yes, I got the door open.
Caller: Okay, I’ll see if I can get Triple A or something.
Operator: Okay, thank you.
Caller: Okay, I’m uh I’m sorry.
Operator: That’s okay, thank you.
On the bright side, at least she is a Triple A member and didn’t ask the operator to dispatch a mechanic to her location.
Distract yourself from the horrors of the holiday with this tale and more that can be found in You Called 9-1-1 For What?.
This is one of the advantages of having an ebook enrolled in KDP Select… being able to literally give your work away.
