NYC's 911 down for 1 hour, result is 1 death : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

NYC's 911 system was down for about 1 hour on Sunday when an emergency backup generator failed. WABC radio just reported 1 death as a result, because a heart attack victim couldn't get help in time.

So... how many of you have the alternatives to 911 clearly posted by your phone, along with clear directions on how to travel there? (hospital, police, etc)

Argh!!!! I hate increasing the signal to noise ratio here, so I did check the thread title's for a mention of this. Since "Death" wasn't very discriptive, I thought this would be a new topic.
