I once saw a guy on a motorcycle lose control of his bike in an intersection, fly across the hoods of several cars, and land in a median. He wasn't moving when he landed. Yeah, I thought I'd better call.

Yes, when my mom would fall. And when she fell down the stairs. And my sister had to call 911 on my dad when he fell in the bathroom. Turned out his Warfarin levels were too high

As a kid I typed 911 but didn't know the phone would automatically call. But ever since I haven't needed to. Benefits of living in a town of barely 1,000 people

Once, in the early 80s. There was an altercation going on out in the street at the end of my block between an angry guy, an apparent ex-girlfriend, and a passerby who was trying to be a peacemaker. The sidewalks were full of kids just home from school, out playing. Angry guy went into house and came back with a gun.
I called 911, along with half the other people on the block. The cops came very fast, but not fast enough. Peacemaker guy was lying dead in the street when they arrived.

I called 911 after finding a car on the lawn next to my driveway backed up to a tree. A woman was in it, conscious, but ignored me. Turned out her blood sugar went to low and she was nearly comatose.

Called them twice in one day when I was like 3. I did it on a rotary dial phone which I didn't even know how to use so it was purely dumb luck. They weren't happy.

I've called police twice in my life, both times this year. Use to solve my own problems. Since getting older and paying lots of property taxes. Figured I would put my money to work. First call had a unknown horse show up at my house. Second call had a unknown dog show up at my house.

One of my best friends did, from my phone, trying to call her home in Kansas. Apparently, 1-913 and 9-113 look *exactly* the same - to at least one person from Kansas.

MANY times...Mom was a 911 operator & taught me how to call & supply the needed information & what things to report. 🙂
I have only called for myself or a family member five times, I think.
1) My grandmother was hemorrhaging at home post-op & a tween me was the only person there with her.
2) & 3) Car wreck x 2 (Neither was ruled my fault)
4) & 5) With Dad toward the end of his illness

Twice, to report accidents...one of which I was involved in. The cops took over an hour to get there, and didn't know jack about DOT CDL rules. I'll only use 911 when I'm legally obligated to do so.

Oh yeah! Worse. Neighbors. Ever. Called many times, but the worst was when the boyfriend set the girlfriend on fire and she ran into the street ON FIRE! He was charged with attempted murder and went to jail. Very druggie neighbors.

Once when I was about 14. I was home alone after school and an old beat up car drove on to my lawn while I was watching TV, and a thug-looking guy ran out of the car towards my house. He started wiggling the doorknob, hit the front window, then jumped the fence to my back yard, then over the wall to the neighbors yard.
I called 911 freaking out.
About 30 seconds later 2-3 police cars came into the driveway with their guns out. Found out they were chasing him.
Happened nearly 30 years ago and it still shakes me up.

Cars stopping at a garage sale were blocking the road until it was only one lane...then you had pedestrians with no sidewalk. It was an accident waiting to happen.

Once at work while dialing 9 to connect with an external number (con call). I somehow dialed 99 instead of 9 then 11 instead of 1. I still can't figure how I did it but I assume it was an error because I was talking to someone in the room while I was dialing and wasn't paying much attention. I apologized to the operator and ensured them there was no emergency. That location somehow had enough erroneous 911 dials the locality started fining us each time.

I called them for fun as a kid. My mom had to explain to them to not send over a cop car.

I butt dialed it once. I heard talking coming from my pants and I was like what the heck is my phone doing. My confusion quickly went to shock after I got the 911 what's your emergency message from the other end. She had to send a patrol car over after I explained the situation. It ended up being Nancy a friend of both of my parents and they had a friendly chat for a while.

70% of Democrats answered yes. I'm assuming they called 911 to report that the election was stolen from Hillary by the Russians.

Funny story. When I was 4, for about a week, I came home to an empty house because my mom was being kept late at work and couldn't get there for about 20 minutes after I arrived. One of those days, on the bus on the way home, I got a migraine that I honestly thought at the time was killing me, so I called 911 and asked them where my mom kept the Asprin, bawling my eyes out the whole time.
My mom got home to 3 angry cops demanding to know what a 4-year-old was doing at home alone, and a 4-year-old who was hiding under her bed refusing to come out because his head hurt and the cops scared the crap out of him.
So yeah...that was my 911 experience. It's one of the very first things I remember. XD
