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.
