Emergency Suggestion

Thursday, February 23, 2006
So I was mulling this one over for the past few days and actually discussed it with people at work.

Emergency Number: 911. Everyone knows this.
Non-Emergency Number: ??? I have no idea what it is.

My suggestion is to make a non-emergency number something like 912 or 922 or something easy to remember. That way if you have a non-emergency you can actually contact someone about it without having to find a phone book to look up the number. If it turns out to be an emergency, they can just forward your call to 911.

There have been times that I would want to "let someone know" of something I saw, but it's not going to require an emergency dispatch. However, it might be somewhat timely information and having to try to figure out some obscure number just means that people will either waste 911 time or leave things unreported.
