(in the dialer i dial the right number but it still doesnt work) even though I dial 101 (ambulance) it calls 911 I need to change the emergency number default from 911

a shot in the dark (but i'm about to test it test week while in mexico with location services set to HIGH)
do you, have location / & location reporting services turned ON?
i know, it may sound like it has NOTHING to do with emergency calling, but, think on it,
how tight google has been working to make kitkat so uniformed with google now services, look up via the phone dialer, etc..
it's almost a mystery what features *location* actually have & how deep they burrow -
i mean it's a shot in the dark, if your in a country other than the US (with a phone marketed by an US company) just maybe, those defaults in the phone dialer may change, with location / location reporting..
i could be right, or dead wrong..
what does it hurt.. to *try* ..

what i'd really be shocked at, is if the 911 emergency dialing is (shockingly) hard coded into the google dialer, EVEN THOUGH that nexus 5 is markerted to *the rest of the world* (Device Information: Nexus 5 D821), ither it's a terrible over-sight, or it's not hard coded at all.. (i hope not)..
it shouldn't be, that's i suspect the missing piece would be location / location services, to right what's wrong..
