Have you ever dialed 999/911 (what is it in other countries?) and why?
I had to ring for the police the other night for the first time ever. I was woken up by screaming and shouting and cars smashing in a street nearby. I couldn’t believe noone else had called the police because it was going on for ages but I didn’t want another ‘Kitty Genovese’ scenario.
It made me realise at 23 it was the first time I’ve ever needed to dial 999, and was surprised by how friendly and chatty the emergency operator was.
