(1) It shall be an affirmative defense that the person charged has a good faith, reasonable, factual basis for the request.
(2) It shall be an affirmative defense that the person charged had an actual belief that an emergency existed.
(3) It shall be an affirmative defense that a person charged made an unintentional request for service, including accidental dials, misdials, and mechanical activations.
