I've been an avid reader of the wonderful Nee Naw Blog for a couple of years now, and I've just spotted a post about a new petition calling upon the Government to educate people about the proper use of the 999 emergency telephone number.
Go and sign it now, please, and then go and read about when not to call 999.
Nee Naw is an excellent source of information and still manages to be humourous in the right places.
Here's a few of my favourite links from Nee Naw:
Common Beliefs Held By The General Public about Calling 999
Hoaxes and Other Abuses of the 999 Service
The 10 Commandments of Dialling 999
101 Embarrassing Sexual Accidents (I nearly wet myself laughing at parts of this one. Am I a bad Womble?)
