Inspired by the story of how one worker got trampled to death by greedy shoppers, and just the lack of care for another's well being in a bad situation.
So here is a scenario:

If you saw someone have a heart attack in the middle of an aisle in a market, would you call 9-11?
#2
No. Mainly because i'm English. So i'd call 999 instead.

No, I'd order a pizza.

I'd phone 000 in all seriousness.

why do we have the 2 buttons that are farthest away from each other here in the us, when it seems like in other countries they seem to have the logic to make it 3 numbers that are all the same so you can dial it faster. whoever came up with 911 must have had a hard time with the idea of an 'emergency number'

Aussies emergency number.

I would dial 111, and do what ever I could first aid wise. Trained provider FTW.

It takes roughly the same amount of time to type 911 or 000 or 999.

I'm gonna go out right here and jinx this poll by saying:

Wow, it's at 100% so far.

EDIT: Ah, and there's first vote going the other way.

It seems to me you'd be less likely to press 911 by accident, too.

Nice going.

And it's not 999 or 111 or 000 because if you are sitting on a phone it is most likely to hit the same key more than once.

edit: beaten.

Yes, but I'm voting no because this thread is retarded.

I was working at a store once when someone had a heart attack so I radioed for the operator to call 911. So I voted yes.
#31
I have taken CPR training, so I guess it's my duty to tell someone else to call and actually assist the man myself, but yeah, the principle is the same.

This.

If I dialled 9-11 I'd have to pay for a long-distance call and explain the situation much more thoroughly, then probably pay for the expenses of the American emergency services to get to Britain, and I'd have to wait for them for days, then by the time they got here, the person would probably have died anyway, then I'd look like an idiot. It's just good sense.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

I saw a collapsed guy on the street a few weeks ago...I tried calling 999 but someone else already had and other people were helping him, but yano.
#35
Yeah, and I have done before. Once for an old lady who broke her ankle when she fell walking down a hill in Colchester, and once for the woman who lives opposite me when she hung herself and her sister found her.

Oh, and I was the one doing everything when my mum fell in the road and broke and dislocated her elbow earlier this year. Everyone else (she'd had a party) was faffing around doing sod all, so I got her out of the road, put my jacket on her, called the ambulance, got her an overnight bag and so on and so forth. Everyone else was all "oh, my God, it looks so gross". Well, duh, that's not helpful is it.

Oh...I called a fire engine once when some chavs set fire to a hedge in a field that backed onto someone's house, but the fire was almost out by the time they got there, so it wasn't really dangerous or anything.

Yeah, I've called an ambulance for other people on two occasions, and fetched some cops from down the road when a woman KO'd on the street in front of me.

Of course I would! (However I'd call 999)
What kind of heartless bastard would just ignore someone in serious trouble?

You'd be amazed. I have type one diabetes, and once when I was at school I was walking through Colchester to the bus station and my blood sugar was really, really low, so I was having trouble even walking. One person who I knew saw me and laughed and was all like "HAH ESTHER'S DRUNK LOL WHUT A PISSHEAD", and several adults just told me to watch where I was walking.

Considering I was incredibly pale, in tears, stumbling all over the place and almost throwing up, you'd have though someone would have noticed I needed some help.

But people are cunts

BUT, what if you're on a cliff, broken all bones, stuck hanging on a rock, seabirds attacking you, waves bashing just below, cold temperate and wind chill freezing your extremities, your phone trapped and stuck in a thin ledge and can't be moved, and you stretch your finger and find you can only reach the "9" key.
