The neighbor who has been teaching me to turn wood had a fall yesterday. He's in his '80s and has Parkinson's so this wasn't a big surprise. He called us and I went over. The problem was that his legs were tangled up and I couldn't get him up by myself. The other guy who he calls to help was away from home, so we called 9-1-1.
We called 9-1-1 four times. The first three got a recording that "all operators are busy" and to stay on the line (we got disconnected each time). Finally we got through and the Paramedics took him to the hospital.
This got me thinking about what happens if the Electric Boogaloo comes - you'll be on your own. You should think about what your plan for emergency first aid will be. Probably there are some classes that are available, maybe at the local community college. I need to think about what those might be.
But the bottom line is that if the Electric Boogaloo comes, my neighbor is probably a gonner. He won't be the only one.
