All across the United States when there is an emergency or a crisis there is one number the citizenry turns to in order get assistance… 9-1-1!
This book provides transcripts of actual 9-1-1 calls from actual people who need help during an “emergency“…you know, like when you want to know the penalties for illegally growing marijuana, when you open your car door but the car alarm does not go off, or when your cat has had enough and decides to attack you and your family… essentially holding you hostage in your own home because… OMG! Teh kat has claws!
The book concludes with a lesson on when and how to actually place a 9-1-1 call so that the operators can help the responders reach you quickly.
When in doubt and you or someone you know needs help in an emergency, just call 9-1-1!
Here is an excerpt from You Called 9-1-1 For This?:
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.
