Educating Children on the Use of 911

Parents can enforce proper use of 911 at home to children of pre-school age and up.

  • Remind them that 911 is to be used only in the case of an emergency. It is not a toy.
  • Unplug a telephone from the wall jack and have the child practice dialing the number 911.
  • Act out scenarios in which Mommy or Daddy can not come to the phone, but need help. Have one parent play the 911 operator.
  • Ask the following questions: 911, what is your emergency? What is your name? What is your telephone number?
  • Remind your child not to hang-up until they are told to do so by the 911 operator.
