9-1-1 for Kids
Be sure children know what 9-1-1 is, how to dial from a home and cell phone, and to trust the 9-1-1 call taker. Make sure your child is physically able to reach at least one phone in your home. When calling 9-1-1 your child needs to know his/her name, parent’s name, telephone number, and most importantly your address. Tell them to answer all the call takers questions and to stay on the phone until instructed to hang up.
9-1-1 for Adults
Be sure you and your loved ones know what 9-1-1 is, how to dial from a home and cell phone, and to trust the 9-1-1 call taker. Be aware that un-activated cellphones can still dial 9-1-1. When call 9-1-1, know your location or address and the number you are calling from. Allow the call taker to ask their questions and stay on the line with the call taker until instructed to hang up.
