When to Call 911

If There is an Immediate, Life-threatening Emergency, Dial 911

It can be frightening to call 911 for emergency help, but it is important for emergency services personnel to know the information necessary in order to provide proper emergency service to those in need, and even more important for you to stay as calm as possible to assist the 911 dispatcher.

Keep the following information on hand, and leave it where it will be immediately available in case the need to call 911 arises. It would be wise to review this information with all members of the family, especially children.
