BEAVERTON -- Each week, Washington County posts bad examples of 911 calls in its “You called 911 for that?” campaign.

The campaign is designed to draw attention to the dangers of non-emergency calls that tie up 911 lines. This week’s call really lives up to the hype.

OPERATOR: 911, Police Fire and Medical.

CALLER: Yeah we got a problem here. My wife is struggling in her jacket and can't get it off. I want 911 here immediately.

OPERATOR: Is she not breathing?

CALLER: She's alright, she just can't get her [expletive] jacket off.

Just in case you were wondering, the fire department responded, rescued the woman and saved the jacket.
