Why your child should know how to call 911

When calling 911, your child will need to know your home address. So have your child practice it. Among other information, your child may need to tell the 911 dispatcher:

• His or her name.

• What the problem is.

• The location of the person who needs care. It helps to give details, such as "Grandpa is on the kitchen floor" or "Mom is in the backyard next to the fence."
