Life Lesson - When you call 911 in the US, someone from emergency services will show up. When you hang up on the 911 dispatcher... MANY people from emergency services will show up.
This lesson brought to you by my late call tonight, who apparently did NOT know this.
When you stay on the line: dispatcher pry as much info out of you as possible so they can call the right people.
When you hang up: "idk what this guy's problem is, better cover everything including the kitchen sink. Hope you didn't prank call because you're getting billed if you did."
Same in Canada. It's to assume the worst.
Note: Called, hung up. Picked up on dispatch call back, and hung up. Picked up on 2nd callback, and said she needed "a ambulance".
So, 1 LEO unit, 3 volunteer Fire units, and my truck all descend on address. LEO went in first, rest staged, waiting to see WTF was up... "Scene safe." She changed her mind, AFTER calling 911, and decided she didn't want to go to the hospital, because she didn't have a ride back.
