Real Phone Calls to 911
Enjoy these .MP3 audio samples from
the CDs based on Leland Gregory's "What's the Number for 911?" book series. Hear

If you need a multimedia plug-in to
"answer the phone," follow these links.

another report of wacky 911 calls may be found in the Related Resources in the right
