P.I. Plug’s home safety video
Note that this plug-like caricature is in the US configuration (compare with Australian electrical plugs). Measurements are imperial and the emergency phone number demonstrated is American. In Australia, we dial 000, or 112 (for GSM mobile and satellite phones), which is answered by a Triple Zero (000) operator.
