| When I call 911 I use 99% common sense, 0% ignorance, and 0% rudeness! |
| Well, how did you do? Do you use common-sense when you call 911? Or are you ignorant of the ways of the emergency services? Do you have bad people and phone skills? |
This test was created as a joke, but on a serious note let me give my faithful test-takers a bit of advice to get you through life -- and emergencies -- a little more smoothly.
Top Ten Things To Remember When Dialing 911:
10. Don't commit/admit to crimes while on the phone with us.
9. If you're witnessing a crime, stay calm! Try to get a description of the suspects, or tell us what direction that drunk driver is going.
8. Listen to us! If we ask you or tell you something, it's usually for a reason, and that reason is usually your safety.
7. Before you hit "send," think to yourself: is there an immediate threat to someone's life or property? Is someone at risk here? If not, then you can probably call the non-emergency number.
6. Learn and memorize/program your non-emergency police response number. Use this for parking problems, noise complaints, burglary reports and animal problems.
5. Don't scream. You hyperventilate, and we can't hear anything. Nobody wins.
4. Know where you are at. Cell phone GPS systems are good, but not that good. Know an address or an intersection you can tell us. And for that matter when we ask where you're at, the correct response is not "I'm right here."
3. Teach your children about 911, but don't tolerate or think it's cute when they abuse it. You're tying up the line that other people could be trying to use.
2. Don't call 911 if your hamburger turns out bad at the local Burger King.
And the number one piece of advice...
1. Stay calm. Help us help you.
