That's like the advice the 911 operators shared in their collected stories of insanity a couple years ago. Basically, if you're calling 911 for a legit reason nowadays you: (if you don't get put on hold/wind up in an automated wormhole) scream Semi-coherent stuff, hang up, and redial, then try again to, more coherently hopefully, explain what's up.
Or something like that.
Regardless, the 911 system is FUBAR in many, many cities.

I scanned the article and it says
We have created a rumor control page for Hurricane #Florence that will be updated regularly. During disasters, it's critical to avoid spreading false information. Always check with official sources before sharing. http://fema.gov/florence-rumors

No kidding. Every time something comes out of that place I have to wonder if it is true or why are they doing something. The Syria deal is one of the latest. We will attack because you might use chemical weapons. We will attack because you used chemical weapons. We will attack just because we can. We will... and so on. It is one thing to tell us why but when you can't settle on one reason it is really not helping at all.

In all seriousness, you're absolutely correct. 911 services haven't remotely kept up with technology or population changes. Suburbs are the worst off. Either they are on incompatible systems (which require an extra step on their part to route a call), or they're all consolidated into a single service (which is horribly understaffed).

I keep all the "main line" non emergency numbers in the area in my phone. For the most part, those still ring through to the physical locations of each agency. It keeps mid-level situations (fender benders, unsafe drivers, creeps in vans, etc) in the right agency and doesn't bog down the actual 911 service.

My native Province of New Brunswick got state-of-art emergency direct to voice mail calling from the authorities when it got universal, standard non-option voice-mail, etc.

The RCMP or other authorities can send warnings directly to every land line in the province. There are still a lot of these because old people are numerous in the bedroom dormitories of the nation.

Socialism works. Especially when a private regional phone company owned by Bell Canada does it.

Canada is getting a new national, cross-country warning system via television, radio and wireless (cellphone). The landlines get emergency mass-voice mails from the RCMP and other emergency and safety organizations. Apparently they also have telephone voicemail to email systems so you can forward a voice-mail via email.

All very modern, even in the poorest provinces. I don't know all the details nationally or provincially, but the whole Province of New Brunswick has had voicemail for every line for years now. You can get anything from police alerts to weather alerts and road conditions.

The old people I know are always deeply concerned by road conditions nowadays. In the old days they used to drive through blizzards and school buses would occasionally have to stop a local church overnight.

Never did myself, but it was 25 miles to the regional high school and junior high school from where I lived. I was bused like a black Puerto Rican. Well, like most of the kids in the remote villages, at any rate after the big regional schools were built.

You're kidding, right? People seriously damage sensitive coastal areas every day as it is, without even really working at it. The damage done by people who don't know what they're doing could be enormous. And also - do we really want to be encouraging people to hang out on the beach with a twelve foot storm surge in play?
