Yes, I have had to dial it only once when I had a bad accident on my farm, and I was alone.

My phone round my neck got slightly smashed and I thought it would not work, however in the end it did!

I was very lucky I had the phone with me as would not have got back to the house with my injuries.

Yes I have had to call it twice - once for my sister and once for a stranger in the park that collapsed.

Yes! I have required Ambulance service on a couple of occasions after 2 extremely nasty falls. The ambulance HQ is just around the corner from me,so they got here almost as soon as I hung up the phone!!!
I have never needed to, touch wood I will never have to. But I have rang it by accident before when my phone decided to dial numbers whilst in my pocket!
I've called 000 a number of times, yes. The scariest time was when my 2yr old was having an asthma attack. He was coughing so much that it was making him vomit and he'd gasp for air and chock on the vomit. His lips were turning blue .... it was TERRIFYING! We lived in the middle of the city then and the ambulance arrived within 2 minutes.

I've also had one called for me, when I was in premature labour.

I called one for a friend who had an epileptic fit.

I called one for my partner when he slipped a disc - they thought I was crazy when I said that they had to come and get him coz I was 41w pregnant and couldn't move him LOL but he did actually have a serious injury

My teenager went missing one day so I called.

I heard a woman screaming in the park one day so I called.

There are others too but I can't remember. Is my life the Bold and the Beautiful? Probably! But not so glamorous.
LOL megg -you sure have had your share of 000-i hope you have no more!

Oh meee tooooo! But with 3 young boys in the house I really don't hold out much hope that we'll avoid any ambulance trips to hospital.

I have a good few times.Not a nice thing to have to do.
From a guy trying to get into my house, at 2 am in the morning, to house fire, to medical issues.

I don't think vandalism qualifies as an emergency.

Only once, about 37 years ago. I had a small oven fire, while baking a cake. I tried to put it out myself, but I couldn't. My husband was at work. I asked for the fire truck Not to have it's siren on as it arrived, but they did arrive with it on! I was so embarrassed! I had my 4 year daughter sitting on the lawn, with her friend! They did a wonderful job cleaning up afterwards. You wouldn't have even known they'd been there. About 10 years ago, we SHOULD have called an ambulance when my husband was having a heart attack, but he decided to take 1/2 an aspirin & drive him self 7/8ks to the hospital! (I don't drive) When we arrived, he thought he was fine, so he drove home again. went back to bed for 1/2hr, & then of cause he wasn't, so we drove back to the hospital, after he'd parked in an emergency spot. He was whisked off straight away for the tests, had to stay there for 5 days, then was moved to another hospital for another 3/4 days to have stents put in. The day he came out, he took public transport with our daughter, back to collect his car, walking from the railway station! His car was still in the emergency spot, without a ticket! Phew!
