Emergency education: Things to know before dialing 911 for help

-A A +A
By Maryellen Garrison

We all know to call 911 to report life-threatening emergencies, but knowing what to say to a dispatcher can help increase police, fire or EMT response time, which in some situations can save a life.
When calling 911, try to stay calm and answer questions to the best of your ability. Answer loudly and answer clearly.
Dispatchers are trained to ask certain questions to help them best assess a situation.
Be sure to describe your location to the best of your ability with either a street address, intersection or landmarks to help emergency personnel locate you.
