If you call 9-1-1

If you have to call 9-1-1 for an emergency, remember that giving good information to the operator is essential in saving lives.
Today's Assignment:
By each phone post:
1. Your family's names
2. Your complete address- inlude apt. # or gate access code
3. Your major crossroads
4. your home phone number
When speaking to a 9-1-1 Operator, remain calm and provide as much detail as possible about the nature of the emergency.
If you have small children in your home ( your own, nieces/nephews, or grandchildren) teach them how and when to dial 9-1-1 for help and what information they will need to provide.
Having accurate and complete information could mean the difference between life and death
