What did Russia do when 9.11 happened?
As far as I recall, and I'm sure you can check this by looking up the New York Times for the 12th, the Russians, like everybody else in the world who are not our mortal enemies, sent a message of sympathy. What else would you expect them to do, at least publicly? Phil
The 911 centre is called that because it's the telecommunications centre that receives and processes calls to the emergency 911 system. Added: Above is correct. Contrary to some belief, it has nothing to do with the disaster in New York City which occurred on that date. It simply happened to coincidentally occur on a date that coincided with that emergency number.
When you dial 911, your call is routed to the nearest emergency call center. The operator will answer with something like "911 What is your emergency?" As calm as possible: 1. Where you are. 2. Explain what has happened. 3. How many people were involved (need assistance). Stay on the line until the dispatcher hangs up!
