That is surprising. In Canada, it was much higher during that same period of time. Incidentally, 9-1-1 was first implemented in Winnipeg, Canada, the city I was born in. I believe the 9-1-1 system came into effect in the late 50s here, so by the 80s, it was well known in most Canadian cities, I guess it may have been implemented much later in America.
