Preparedness Tip #8

Teach your children how and when to call 9-1-1 or your local Emergency Medical Services number for help.  Post these and other emergency telephone numbers by telephones.

Although dialing 9-1-1 seems like an easy task, children (and even adults!) can become flustered during an emergency and forget how to dial 9-1-1.  Writing emergency numbers down and having them near your phone will take stress off of the situation.  You should also review when, why, and where you should be calling for help, depending on the situation.
