Reasons To Call 911
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

911 is a valuable service. People hope that they never have to call this number, but they feel better knowing that the service is there for them. There are a number of valid reasons to call 911.

One reason is because of a medical emergency, such as a heart attack. During a heart attack, a person will likely experience chest pains and have difficulty breathing. Ideally, the heart attack victim would have someone with him who would call 911 for him. This person would then be instructed on how to care for the victim until help arrives. Medical emergencies are not the only reason why people call 911, of course.

Another reason why people call 911 is because of situations such as house fires. Obviously, if a person's house is on fire, he should not call 911 from inside his house. He would burn to death if he did. Instead, he should get out and make the call from outside his house. He may value his house and possessions, such as his flat screen TV, but possessions can be replaced. He, on the other hand, cannot be replaced. He has friends and family who love him. They would miss him if he perished in a fire. Therefore, he is much safer calling 911 from outside his house. After a short time, the fire department will show up to put the fire out. Situations such as medical emergencies and fires are good reasons to call 911. A person should not call 911 to tell the staff there that he is going to bed, however. A call like this causes problems, because the staff is then busy with a nonsense call. Since they are busy, they are not available for the people who need them.

It is perfectly alright for one person to call another to tell him that he is going to bed, but this is not a call for 911. It is the kind of call that a boyfriend might make to his girlfriend, perhaps. The boyfriend might call his girlfriend, ask her how her day at work went, and talk about their plans for the upcoming weekend, for example. Perhaps the couple is planning a fabulous weekend getaway. During the call, they might talk about what they want to do on their special trip. He will then wish her a good night and sweet dreams and tell her that he will see her tomorrow. That way, there will be no problems for anyone. Lives can be saved, and everyone can have a good night.

Kids, calling 911 to complain about mom and dad not letting you go to your friends house is not alright..... :)
