911 is to be used only for emergencies (police, fire or medical) where an immediate response is required – when there is an emergency and lives are in danger, immediate action is required or there is a crime in progress.
Most calls to 911 ARE NOT of an emergency nature and an immediate response IS NOT required.
Volunteering is a great way to get work experience! You learn new skills by trying new jobs.
You might find something you'd like to do for a living, or discover what you would not want to do.
Better yet, you can meet people who can give you guidance and possibly help you to find a paid job later on.
Employers will be impressed that you took the initiative to learn new things.
You can learn how a charitable organization works.
Best of all, you will be taking action to promote what you think is important and probably be helping someone else along the way.
