Who you gonna call?

As Randal noted, it does depend on the nature of the emergency.
When anything mechanical goes south (car, washer, etc.), I call my Dad. It’s been such a blessing living less than 2 miles from my parents. Dad is 77 but stronger than many 50-year-olds I know. He’s not very “book smart,” but his mechanical aptitude is very high (he was an electrician for decades). He loves to fix cars (the older the better) and is ASE certified (he took the tests for “fun” a few years ago).
When I have PC problems, I call my brother. He builds & repairs laptops & PCs. He’s pretty good & has been able to fix things the couple times I’ve had problems in the past.
