Summary

This edition features 999 calls about a range of non-emergencies, from culinary injuries to broken light bulbs, as well as the more serious problem of hoaxers who abuse the system. The fire brigade are called to a string of non-existent fires, costing thousands of pounds and diverting crews away from people who could be in desperate need. Elsewhere, ambulance control operator Tracey Gardiner tries to instruct a woman on how to carry out CPR when she rings to say that her husband isn't breathing.
