OK I'll go first let me pick a subject oh I know you pick up your cell phone and you dial a number . A person on the other says 911 what is your emergency?
My friend he just got hit with an RC airplane and he's bleeding I need an ambulance.
Operator on other end says sir you're on a cell phone what is your location.
You : I'm at the RC flying field
Operator : yes sir I understand ...just exactly where is that.
Now you try to give directions, rattled trying to help your friend did you get them right how much time have you wasted?
I would suggest each club appoint someone to contact the local 911 service in your area and let them know the name of your field and the location and then get the word out. Those precious moments could make the difference or even if you're just by yourself you can call 911 I'm having chest pain I'm at the RC field if 911 knows where that is it could make a real difference.
