HOUSTON – A Houston couple says they were victims of a former Houston Emergency Center 911 operator who has allegedly confessed to hanging up on callers seeking emergency help because “she did not want to talk to anyone at that time. ”The former emergency operator, Crenshanda Williams, 43, is charged with two counts of interference with an emergency telephone call, a class A misdemeanor that carries a punishment of up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine for each count upon conviction.
Pendley says Williams hung up on him in the early morning hours of March 1 when his wife collapsed and lost consciousness after a blood clot moved to her lungs.

This is why you have been warned you are the First Responder. Paramedics, cops, etc are second unless you are untrained and decide to pass the baton of your safety to people who may or may not show up on time, or not at all.
Learn to defend yourself and others, learn to save yourself and others. There is a reason we not only focus on guns but on First Responder kits and training on how to use both.
