No Emergency? Try A 9-1-1 Alternative
Nov 14, 2005
If you're in need of specific services in Madison County,Kentucky but it does not involve an emergency, you'll be able to dial "two-one-one."
The 2-1-1 system is being implemented in Madison and eight other counties by the United Way of the Bluegrass, a non-profit organization that funds more than 200 programs in health, safety, learning and community-building in the region.
A pilot program for the service was launched in Clark County in June.

Thats an intresting one, in Ohio, at least southwest corner you can dial 5-1-1 for Artimis traffic report and get the "good samatrian" van to come out. Each driver of the vans is a fully certified ASE manchiac and EMT. They respond to traffic accidents, medical emergencies and breakdowns/lockouts on the highway or entrance/exit ramps. Those things have more amber lights than a christmas tree.

We have trucks like that here but they are Sheriff's Deputies and I don't think they are ASE Certified lol.
There is also a 3-1-1 here to report city problems such as street lights out, utility problems, road hazards etc....."Training doesn't make you a good fireman, fighting fire makes you a good fireman"

Chicago also has a 311 system for non emergency reports and other miscellaneous city admin stuff.
