I got a little card in my mailbox the other day with a number of phone numbers in case of emergency. There was a number for the police, the fire dept, and an ambulance.
It dawned on me that I don’t know the number to call in case of emergency. I mean, do I have to remember a number for all of them in case I need them? Is there a 911* that connects me with whatever I emergency service I might need?
Moreover, if there is, are there industrialized countries that don’t have a 911 number.
*obviously, I know the number might or might not be 9-1-1. Just an example.
