What If You Call 911 And No One Comes? | NBC News Now

Most people assume that if you call 911 for a medical emergency, an ambulance or police will show up in a matter of minutes. NBC News has found out that most Americans live in states that do not consider EMS as an essential service. As many as 60 million Americans are counting on a local EMS system that is in danger.

  1. The EMS in my county is pretty good but I have twice called 911 for Police and nobody shows up and that was within the last two years.    I found out they prioritize and if you are low priority they just won't come and they won't tell you either.   The last time was when about twenty people were rioting next door and a girl was getting beaten up but absolutely no police came.  When I called the police the 2nd time I was threatened with arrest for abusing 911 privileges.

  6. The last couple times I called EMS they almost killed me any way. One bunch didn't have the ambulance stocked and what they did have had all kinds of problems, they couldn't even take a heartbeat before I got to the hospital. The second round of morons did more arguing with me then helping while I was having involuntary spasms, and none of the gear worked. I now take myself to the hospital no matter what condition I'm in.
