Thursday, April 11, 2013 N/Warren Town and County News Page Seven Warren County E9-1-1 Joint Service Board Promoting 9-1-1 Education in April April is National 9-1-1 Education Month This campaign is designed to help citizens of all ages recognize the importance of 9-1-1 and their role when calling 9-1-1. In an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately from any wired or wireless phone. An emergency is any situation that requires imme- diate assistance from the police, fire department or ambulance. Examples include: A fire A crime, especially if in progress A car crash, especially if someone is injured A medical emergency, such as someone who is un- conscious, gasping for air or n_ot breathing, experienc- ing an allergic reaction, having chest pain, having un- controllable bleeding, or any other symptoms that re- quire immediate medical attention When you call 911, be prepared to answer the call- taker's questions, which may include: The location of the emergency, including the street address The phone number you are calling from The nature of the emergency Details about the emergency; such as a physical description of a person who may have committed a crime, a description of any fire that may be burning, or a description of injuries or symptoms being experienced by a person having a medical emergency Remember, the call-taker's questions are important to get the right kind of help to you quickly. Be prepared to follow any instructions the cal!-taker gives you. Keep in mind that help may be on the way even though you are still on the phone. Do not .allow children to play with cell phones. Old cell phones that no longer have service can continue to dial 9-1-1. Children playing with cell phones accidently call 9-1-1 and occasionally responders must be sent to assure there is no emergency. Finally, do not hang up until the call-taker instructs you to. If you dial 911 by mistake, or if a child in your home dials 911 when no emergency exists, do not hang up--that could make 911 officials think that an emer- gency exists and possibly send responders to your loca- tion. Instead, simply explain to the call-taker what hap- pened. More Information: http://www.nenaorg/911-tips- guidelines.
