Making the Call.
It’s essential that the public knows when and when not to call 9-1-1. In situations when immediate assistance is required from the fire department, police, or emergency medical personnel, 9-1-1 is the go to number to call. Events like car accidents, medical emergencies, home fires, and crimes in progress are good examples of when to call 9-1-1. Knowing when to call 9-1-1 is only half of the equation.
Callers should be prepared to answer the 9-1-1 dispatcher’s questions. Most often, these questions are about the type and location of the emergency. Details about the emergency like information about injuries or the size of the fire, and the phone number from which the individual is calling. Finally, callers should follow the dispatcher’s instructions and hang up only when instructed to.
Making a Plan.
An emergency plan helps to ensure that families are all on the same page in terms of procedures and action plans. Emergency plans should include information about home escape and community evacuation routes. Meeting places near the home and outside the neighborhood, handling special needs, and how family members will stay in touch.
In the event that immediate help is not available, families should have emergency supplies kits. These kits should include enough supplies for at least three days. And because emergencies can happen at any time, keeping kits at home, work, and in the car is a good idea.
