In Case of an Emergency

Dial 911 immediately if you are experiencing a medical emergency or are in danger, or feel like hurting yourself or others. You can now text your message to 911 if unable to speak in an emergency.

Home Safety

Make an escape plan and have regular Fire Drills. Preparing for an Emergency It is important that your family has a plan that all family members understand. You may need help getting out of the house, and you may not know how to escape or what to do unless your mom or dad shows you.

  • Have a plan for young children who cannot get outside by themselves. Your parents will need to wake babies and very young children and help them get out. Planning for that will help each child get out safely.
  • Know two ways out of every room – important in case one exit is blocked or dangerous to use.
  • Choose a meeting place outside the home. You and your brothers and sisters should know what to do when they hear a smoke alarm and there is no adult around. Practice going to an outside meeting place. No one should ever goes back inside a building that is on fire, even to save a pet. Make sure someone dials 911 once you are at your meeting place.
