Yes. This girl was getting beat up on the street by a dude in El Cajon. It was right on Main Street. I was just driving past. I called and told them where it was, then went on my way. They took it from there.

No, actually. My parents had to call a long, long time ago when their car got stolen. But I wasn’t the one who did it. I’ve never had to call 911 myself.

Yes. I used to lifeguard at a kids’ camp. It wasn’t me that pulled him out, but I was the one who called 911. It was like a 4H camp back on the East Coast in Connecticut. The kid ended up being fine; it was just procedure that we had to call. I had to call 911 another time, too. In high school I was working at a Barnes & Noble during the winter season and this girl started having a seizure. I didn’t know what to do, so I called 911.

I think I was, like, six at the time. I was with my cousin, Tracy. We were watching the movie The Santa Clause — the one with Tim Allen — and he goes, “Quick, call 911!” I ran into the other room and called 911. I told them that the TV told me to call. They asked me if my parents were home. My grandmother was home, and she had to apologize.
