Here are some tips to help remember what to do when they are on the phone with 9-1-1: 

  • Remember to stay calm and speak slowly.
  • Know your location.
  • Tell the call taker about the emergency.
  • Speak up loud and clear when the 9-1-1 call taker asks you questions.
  • Stay on the phone until the 9-1-1 call taker tells you to hang up.

If you ever need to call 9-1-1, a call taker is ready to help you. Just remember that 9-1-1 is for emergencies only - never as a joke!
