Never *rely* on 911 services, period.  The Supreme Court ruled some time
ago that police departments, that nice "To Protect And Serve" motto
notwithstanding, have no "duty to protect" and cannot be held reponsible
for failing to protect you, even when answering an emergency call, even
if the reason they failed to protect you is because they took 45 minutes
to respond to the call.
