|"We're sorry. 911 Service is currently unavailable."|
Over a million people were without power, many for over a week. A few even longer.
What you may not have heard was that the entire 911 emergency system went down as well.
In the county where I live there was no 911 service for just over seven days. This in a time when emergencies were actually happening all over the place.
It occurred to me I do not have the direct number to the nearest firehouse, hospital or police station. I still need to collect those.
This was just a THUNDER STORM. What if something really bad happened?
The police were in no position to protect us at all. Not even the usual illusion of protection.
