How to call for help
When calling 911...
- STAY CALM
- Wait for the dial tone. Dial "9-1-1," the rescue squad number.
- Tell the emergency person what is wrong. SPEAK SLOWLY. GIVE YOUR NAME, ADDRESS, AND PHONE NUMBER.
- DON'T HANG UP until the other person hangs up.
Parents should practice the above steps with their children on an unplugged phone.
