Pizza Emergency

So there is no 911 in the Philippines. We've never figured out how to summon an ambulance, and with the traffic here I wouldn't trust one to get us to the hospital anyway. Thankfully we live close enough to a medical center that Bryce can get us there with some fancy driving in five minutes.

There is, however, a handy number for Pizza Hut delivery: 911-1111. For all those pizza emergencies! (And we've had a few, believe it or not.)

Yesterday we passed an ambulance and saw a number painted on the side: 911-1121. Eureka! We now have an emergency preparedness backup plan. Plus it's nice to know the priorities of the people handing out telephone numbers.
