Calling 911

Calling 911

Calling 911 is really pretty simple, once you think through what the 911 operator needs to know:
The emergency operator needs to know:

  • Where, specifically, you are;
  • What you observe about the victim;
  • What you are doing about the problem.

Don't get dragged into a lengthly conversation with the 911 operator - your priority is to start CPR on the victim 
You need to practice a 911 call. You might feel a little silly practicing a 911 call out loud, but it will make the real call easier.
