  1. For the uninitiated, 999 is the number to call in an emergency, 101 is the number to call when you want the police but it is not an emergency.

  2. Very Smart to have separate numbers for an emergency and non-emergency, not like NYC where 911 is for both, even the fire department doesn’t have there own number. The 911 operator forwards the caller to the fire department dispatcher.
