1. The lights are out in my neighbor hood and its storming really bad. Should I call 911 to report the power is out?
No, you should call the power company that services your area.
2. Why does the fire department come when I call for an ambulance?
Fire departments provide first response to most medical emergencies.
3. If I dial 911 by mistake should I hang up or stay one the line?
Stay on the line and let the operator know it was a mistake. If you hang up, we will have to send a Law enforcement officer to your location.
