This is your friendly Public Service Announcement.

If you are travelling to another country, it would be a good idea to learn how to contact emergency services.

I was in a meeting and the man next to me passed out. I was so glad there were other people around because I would have had no idea how to call the paramedics. Plus, I thought he was just falling asleep because it was a boring meeting, so it's really good someone else saw it too!

In Australia 0-0-0 is equivalent to 9-1-1 in the States. If you know an emergency number for another country, feel free to leave it in the comments!

P.S. My co-worker is fine. He passed out due to low blood sugar and didn't even go to the hospital.
