In case of emergency�
Dial 9-1-1. Try to remain calm and answer the dispatcher's questions. The
dispatcher needs to know what the type of emergency is and to confirm the exact
location in order to assure that the appropriate units are dispatched. Stay on the
phone with the dispatcher. Do not hang up on them! If you are calling from a "land
line" phone, your number and location information will automatically come up on the
dispatcher's computer screen, but the dispatcher will still need to confirm this to be
sure that the information is accurate. If you are calling from a cell phone, the
automatic location information does not work, and you have to tell the dispatcher
where you are.
If the incident is a fire at your home, get everyone out of the house immediately and
call from a neighbor's house. Do not go back inside! Make sure that all your family
members are accounted for, and be sure to tell arriving firefighters, so that they
don't take unnecessary risks searching for possible victims who aren't there.
If the incident is medical in nature, try to keep the patient calm and make them as
comfortable as possible. It is usually best to leave them exactly where they are and
not try to move them, unless of course they are in immediate danger. Try to have
someone outside to meet arriving emergency personnel and guide them to the
patient. Someone will be there in just a few minutes.
