Filipino netizens expressed their gratitude toward the recently introduced 911 Emergency Hotline System by the Duterte administration through sharing stories on social media.
This was integrated with the nation’s service as part of President Duterte’s campaign against crime and corruption.
Bella Caraan and her significant other were strolling close to a shopping center when they saw a lady sitting on the floor crying while a little girl was standing close to her, unable to articulate words other than the name "Maria".
Seeing that the lady was experiencing issues in breathing, the couple immediately contacted 911 to offer assistance.
Inside 30 minutes, a group of 7 doctors touched base to take care of the lady's needs and rushed her to the hospital.
Another Facebook user, Andrew Harder, shared his experience with the new 911 emergency hotline.
The vehicle he was driving had its tire explode while making his way through Mandaluyong on his way to his residence in Manila.
Realizing that he needed a tow truck to solve his problem, Harder contacted 911 and was immediately connected to a female agent who identified herself as “Code 2125” for they were not allowed to reveal their real names.
While waiting for help to arrive, Harder received calls from the agent several times for updates.
Fifteen minutes after he made the call, an MMDA team arrived at the scene to offer help.
The team head even apologized to Harder for keeping him waiting.
Harder was already prepared to pay P2,500 to P3,000 for the hauling fee but to his surprise, the team head informed him that the towing service was free of charge.
“For the first time in my existence I felt treated like a boss by our government and all these taxes we are footing is/was worthwhile after all.
If this occurs during the time of the previous administration, I would've felt the sincerity and weight of (his) famous line "Kayo ang boss ko,” Harder wrote in his post.
