Sometime between my freshman year in high school (1984-5) and my junior year (1986-7), I did a piece for the high school paper about Cuyahoga County, Ohio's new 9-1-1 system (not Enhanced 9-1-1, mind you, just 9-1-1).
Cuyahoga County is one of the largest counties in Ohio (second largest IIRC), and includes Cleveland, the 25th largest city in the USA.
I thought it was a godsend. The South Euclid Police Department's number was 216-381-1234 and our home phone number was216-381-1231. I'd gotten tired of taking emergency calls for them. :)
