Here is an excerpt from You Called 9-1-1 For This? (You Called 9-1-1 For… Book 2):
One of the key pieces of information that 9-1-1 needs is the actual location of the emergency. There are many cases where the address provided isn’t where the emergency actually is. This is very common especially on roadways for motor vehicle accidents. When you consider the circumstance of the caller being in motion and not necessarily aware of exactly where they are, focused on more on where they are going, then it becomes more understandable.
When you aren’t sure how to identify your home address for emergency crews then THAT is a real problem and needs a solution. An easy solution is to know how to spell the street that you live on. But why do something as simple that when you can just do this instead…
Operator: 9-1-1 what’s your emergency?
Caller: Yeah uh, my wife got attacked by a warthog real bad and I need someone to come up with an ambulance and pick her up.
Operator: Okay sir, can you give me your address?
Caller: Uh yeah, we’re at 1825 Eucalyptus Drive.
Operator: Okay can you spell that for me sir?
Caller: Uh… I’m a gonna drag her on over to Oak Street and you can pick her up there.
