How do you make a 911 call?

In an emergency, dial 9-1-1 on your phone. Stay calm and state your emergency. Speak loudly and clearly. Give the 911 dispatcher your name, phone number and the address where help is needed. Answer the dispatcher’s questions. Stay on the telephone as long as it’s safe to do so, and don’t hang up until the dispatcher tells you to.

Be prepared to answer the dispatcher’s questions:

–  What happened?

– Where and when did it occur?

–  Is anyone injured?

–  Description of vehicle(s)

– License plate number(s)

–  Direction of travel of suspect(s)

–  Description of any suspects.
