Yes we had too call 911 a few times at my parents' home. The first time was when our oven caught on fire. The other two times were accidents in our front yard. Yes they came quick all three times

Moving...Hate moving! But can't wait to!!

A couple times.

Once because my son was very sick and vomiting lots of blood breathing problems. Luckily I work on my local Ems so they recognized my address and my boss was at my house in seconds.

We normally have a good response time if 3-5 minutes. But in an emergency minutes seems like hours.

Yes my dad was laying on the floor curled up shaking in pain. The hospital was a 45 minute drive.

Yep. Pulled up to a gas station and saw a man and woman fighting. Just watched at first as he tried to push her out of the car and yelled at her. Got my phone ready when he threw her stuff on the ground and locked the door as soon as she got out. Called when she kept yelling and he got out and slammed her head against the car several times making her bleed. They both went to jail for disturbing the peace, domestic assult, and possession of drugs. Two cops came after about 2 min. a third about 2 min later.

I had to call for my son a few months ago. He had a seizure(which are common for him), but he seemed to not be coming out of this one. There was an ambulance at my house in five minutes, but he was done with it by the time they got here.

I have a lifted pick up. Dd was about 18 months and jumped out of it in the store parking lot. I had turned my head to pull my purse onto my shoulder while she was in the back. Literally turned my head for 3 seconds. Anyways she ended up on the ground and she had a different cry and had did something similar to convulsions (I was in a panic by this point). I called 911 and the cop showed first. Ambulance was about 20min out of town but got there quickly and assessed her. Luckily everything was fine.

Yes, I had a student who couldn't breathe during a fire drill, the nurse asked me to call 911.  It turned out it was a panic attack.  He was fine after he was transported to the hospital.
