How can I prevent my child from accidentally calling 911?

Teaching children when to call 911 is just as important as teaching them how to place a 911 call. Parents should also be aware that wireless phones without a current calling plan through a wireless provider are still capable of connecting a call to a local 911 center. Children should be told not to dial 911 from these old phones, and it is recommended that parents remove the phone’s battery before giving these phones to children.
