I am sure you are all aware of our emergency services in Australia: Fire, Ambulance and Police. They are all clearly visible on the roads (except of course the unmarked police cars) and are fitted with flashing lights and annoying sirens. We all rely upon these services to keep us and our families and friends safe and healthy to some degree or another. I’m sure everyone reading this knows that a phone call to 000 can quickly mobilize these units to your assistance should you require it.
