911 Emergency

If you are in an accident or a fire, if you get sick or lost, if something or someone frightens you, there's a number you can call. Someone at the other end will be there to help you.

What to do?

Step 1

Pick up the phone, Dial 9, then 1, then 1 again. An operator will answer. Speak to the operator with a voice that is loud and clear enough to be understood. Make sure you tell him or her the following: The phone number you are calling from, Your name, Your address and What your problem is.

Answer all the questions the operator asks, don't hang up on them.

If you are away from home and need help, dial 9-1-1 from a pay phone for free.

Step 2

The operator will contact the police or fire department. They will come to help you. Stay on the phone with the operator until help arrives.
