Emergency Information

In Case of Emergency

Emergency phone numbers should always be in sight and up to date.

Remember...

  • In an emergency dial 9-1-1
  • Discuss how to call for help in an emergency with children.
  • Explain to children that fire fighters, ambulance drivers, and police officers can help them in an emergency.

Teach your children how to get help by using a toy phone:

When practicing demonstrate the following:

1. Stay calm
2. Wait for the dial tone and dial 9-1-1
3. Speak clearly and tell the operator what is wrong
4. Give your name, address, and phone number.
5. Don't hang up until instructed.

Take a first-aid and CPR course to ensure that you are prepared to deal with an emergency situation.
