Ausnahmsweise, wie ├╝blich (Consistently inconsistent)

Hi,

Great little entry. Very useful.

It's already been mentioned that it's a bit UK-centric.
I haven't lived in the UK for ages. Is 999 automated to the point where the dispatcher receives a location (grid ref) from a computer?

Do people living in rural areas have any kind of emergency services number (aka "fire number") that they should know? Here in Canada the dispatcher would know from my six digit number where I was, which side of the road (N/S or E/W), etc. It locates my house / driveway within 10 meters.


Awu.
P.S. I've only called an ambulance twice. A hit and run bike vs. pedestrian accident!!! And a snowmobile accident victim.
