San Fran Government: Unless You are being Killed DO NOT CALL 911

It is now official.  San Fran government will not protect you from muggings, home invasions, convenience store robberies, bank jobs. Unless someone is about to KILL you, you are warned not to call 911.  So a mere stroke and being hit by a car—forget it, San Fran will not help.

“However, less than 24 hours later, the Mayor’s assurance was quickly broken by a San Francisco Department of Emergency Management tweet asking citizens to only call 911 only for life threatening emergencies, due largely to a shortage of medical workers and the need to protect those who remained on duty.

“Please don’t call 911 to ask for a COVID-19 test, or because you have a cold, or minor flu symptoms,” said San Francisco Fire Department Chief Jeannie Nichols in a statement. “We really want to keep our ambulances available for people having a heart attack or strokes. The department has been having about over 400 EMS calls a day in the city for the past several days—about 30% more calls than average.”

Why pay taxes to a city that closes it schools, where the police do little and the DA is protecting the criminals while City Hall is protecting illegal aliens.  Now the 911 system is gone.  We need a State of Emergency and a take over of the failed government.

San Francisco Advises Resident To Not Call 911 Unless For A Life-Threatening Emergency

Hundreds of emergency workers in SF out due to COVID

By Evan Symon,  California Globe,  1/11/22 

Over the recent weekend, the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management advised city residents to not call 911 unless it was for a life-threatening medical emergency due to both the rapid spread of the Omicron COVID-19 variant in the area, as well as medical staff and city workers being stretched thin due to the number of medical workers kept isolated at home due to exposure or testing positive for the virus.

Since late December, the number of COVID cases have skyrocketed in California, with most contracting the omicron variant.  While far less lethal than other variants, it has proved to be more contractible. A such, while hospitalizations and deaths are down, the number of daily new positive tests “cases” continues to break records. The total of new number of cases Monday statewide was 56,810.

Cities have seen some of the worst of it, with Los Angeles and San Diego a big factor in the new daily case count. San Francisco has also shown high rates, but has handled this in quite a different way.

Last week, teachers and other school staff members held a “sickout,” with healthy educators staying home to try and force additional COVID-19 measures to be implemented in the city’s school district. By Friday, Mayor London Breed was reporting that hundreds of city workers had to stay home due to COVID-19 and COVID-19 precautions, including over 400 emergency workers.

“We are still seeing staff out due to COVID including: 184 SFPD members 140 SFFD members 122 Muni workers Despite this, we are continuing to provide the critical services our residents deserve,” tweeted Mayor Breed.

However, less than 24 hours later, the Mayor’s assurance was quickly broken by a San Francisco Department of Emergency Management tweet asking citizens to only call 911 only for life threatening emergencies, due largely to a shortage of medical workers and the need to protect those who remained on duty.

“Please don’t call 911 to ask for a COVID-19 test, or because you have a cold, or minor flu symptoms,” said San Francisco Fire Department Chief Jeannie Nichols in a statement. “We really want to keep our ambulances available for people having a heart attack or strokes. The department has been having about over 400 EMS calls a day in the city for the past several days—about 30% more calls than average.”

In a similar vein, a nurse at a San Francisco hospital told the Globe on Monday, “We’ve lost hundreds in the last few weeks due to having COVID19 or staying home as a precaution. We don’t know when these doctors and nurses will come back. We all have to pick up so much slack now. We’re all on edge because of it.”

With resources now strained, and some, such as police being fanned out more in recent weeks to help deal with the ongoing crime wave, already assigned, many San Franciscans expressed growing concern on Monday that there may be a delay in getting needed emergency services.

“Being told not to call an ambulance except for life-threatening injuries is a dangerous thing to do,” said Frank Ma, a former law enforcement official who now works as a security advisor for businesses in San Francisco and cities in the Peninsula, to the Globe on Monday. “How do people know if something is non-threatening? Many times it is not clear. It’s crazy we’re at this point now, but the city isn’t allowing everyone fully an emergency service now It’s shameful.”

While the 911 request isn’t mandatory, it is currently unknown just how far any kind of denial or enforcement could go.

  1. Sane people will move out of, run away as fast as they possibly can, from San Francisco…leaving only nuts & flakes to eke out an existence by the bay.
    Where’s Inspector Callahan when SFCA needs him?

  2. Robin Itzler says

    When you hear the disapproval poll numbers for Biden and other Democrats such as those running San Francisco, remember that it still means between 35-40 percent think the Democrats are doing a great job. That’s a lot of Americans who support high taxes, crime waves, little police protection since the crime rate is so high, inflation, and all the other insanity brought to us by the Marxist-leaning Democrat party.

  3. What is the basic services that created government?

    Public safety.
    Roads and Sanitation.

    Now why are the governments of the State involved to the point where it is an easy statement that a minimum of 50% of you dollars are eaten up by taxes at all levels.

    Think how much money is sucked out of the economy every day because of this.

    How much money could you give a church every Sunday? How much could you give to the Red Cross? How mcuh, how much, how much………………………………………..

    If you had those dollars in your pocket instead of government taking it from you.

    Communities used to run on this but no longer and social issues are dumped to a gov. clone instead of local concern.
