Statistics show you will on average call 911 at least 2 times in your life? 

I have 3 times.  2 accidents and when I was working at a doctors office, someone was having a heart attack.  He waited till his appointment time to come in too!!!

I think I've only called 911 once, and that was last year, in September, after dad had been released back home from rehab for his broken ankle - he had altered mental status and his ankle had swollen up horribly.  I called 911 and they took him to the ER where he was diagnosed with sepsis and admitted. 

I don't recall any other times calling 911.  Hope I never have to!

We called for an ambulance a few months ago. My youngest quit breathing. We called and the ambulance was on its way when my husband got him breathing again. We had him transported to the hospital to get checked out.

Sure a few times. Accidents mostly but also there has been times when we lived in the city that we had to call for incidents.

Once when my mom was really sick. They hung up on me twice.
This year when my husband passed out. One thing about living in a small town took them 20 minutes to get here. Lucky it was not a heart attack

I don't think I've ever called 911, and I hope I never have to use my two times to call.
