ABSTRACT
The article reports that practicing with a play phone and role-playing 911 calls with young child will help her remember what to do in the case of a real emergency. Parents should talk about the right times to call 911, emphasizing that she should call only when someone is hurt or in danger. Refer to the number as 9-1-1, instead of 9-11. Make sure that the child can reach at least one phone in the house. Parents should encourage the child to speak slowly and clearly and to say yes and no out loud, instead of nodding or shaking her head.
