Teaching a Child to Summon Help

We’ve all heard marvelous stories about children who save a loved one’s life. But would your children be able to rise to the occasion? It’s all about preparation. Teach your children how to dial 911 as soon as they can play with the phone. Make sure they know their first and last name. Instruct them to speak loudly and clearly, and to listen carefully for questions and instructions. Go over emergency scenarios, providing more details the older they get. Be sure they understand that calling 911 is not a game, but when in doubt, they should make the call. Routinely review this information with your children.
