Many children know to dial 9-1-1 in an emergency, but often do not know other important information, such as their address or how to reach a parent at work. Here is some of the most important information children need to now about calling 9-1-1:

  • Teach your children their names, their parents names, their home address and home phone number
  • Teach your children the name of your employer and phone numberteddybear_sick
  • Teach your children what an emergency is and when to call 9-1-1

  • Teach your children that it is against the law to call 9-1-1 as a joke or prank
  • Teach your children not to be afraid to call 9-1-1 if there is any doubt whether they should call
