Vonage It is interesting all of the philosophical and esoteric analogies I am seeing



It is interesting all of the philosophical and esoteric analogies I am seeing here.

I am not that old (39), but when I was in 1st grade in my humble roots of rural middle America, I had to know a PHONE number each for POLICE and AMBULANCE. We also had a rotary dial phone. I can still remember those numbers...

You know what? I also had to know how to say my address and what was happening. My parents made sure all of us knew how to dial those numbers from memory and what we would say.

My older sister was deaf and mute and had a tone generator device that was registered with the ambulance and police numbers. Its noise signified our address. (TTY/TDD was for really rich deaf people then...)

My point is this: When I was 6 my mother fell down the basement stairs and suffered a severe head/neck trauma. I found her (panicked) and dialed the ambulance number and told them the problem. They asked my address and in no time an ambulance was there to help my mother.
All of this happened without 911 or E911. BTW: HUxley 4-9890 was the ambulance number...

Now that I am grown and use Vonage with a registered 911 access point, and with my monitored alarm system (both together costs less than my old Verizon bill with E911) my 4 year old can summon the police or fire or medical with the press of a blue, red or green button and not say a word! (Believe me, I know. When she was 3 she tested it... and we got great response.)

BUT my 8 year old knows when she dials 911 what to say. We practice it. Just like my parents did with me. Just like we do with the fire alarm. I even make it go off at 3:21AM to give the kiddies some practice.

Is all of this at the governments push? Or mandate? No. It is because I feel I am responsible and must teach my children and family. (although my smoking is not a great example, I admit) Am I over reaching? Well when I have had one too many cigarettes and finally have my double coronary, I know my children would know what to do.

You may ask: What about visitors? Well first off my visitors are an extension of my family - with three alarm panels in the house at visible areas I think this is a no brainer.. but I tell them how to use them and how 911 works. It seems strange to them at first but I just tell them to humor me. Just in case, there is a nice red note with white lettering at the "main" phone about 911 and what needs to be said.

I fail to see the problem and wonder why the fuss? Yes there are horror stories and yes 911/E911 has minimized problems but is it something that needs mandated/regulated? Should I pay a fee to subsidize those that are not responsible enough to teach the users/members of heir household proper emergency summoning techniques and/or self-control?

Yesterday my elderly neighbor fell off of a step-ladder picking grapefruit. His wife yelled over the fence. My wife dialed 911 stated "we have a alternative phone carrier without 911... our address is xxxxx our neighbor has fallen hit his head and hurt his chest. The operator that answered at the access point stated "hold on" rang a 911 dispatch and repeated the info and asked for verification. My wife said yes. EMS was dispatched.

Maybe I will have my neighbor pay my Vonage 911/E911 regulatory fees in exchange. My Vonage 911 without fees got him medical service, not their regulated Verizon.

I think I will stop now. I've babbled too much. I'll shut up and take my flaming(s).

Would be fine by me.... 911 is well worth it, especially if you have kids.
Agreed. As long as dialing 9-1-1 works I wouldn't mind paying the same fee as I paid
I also agree. That was one of the biggest concerns for my family.
