Learn How To Get Help

Post emergency telephone numbers in a wall behind the telephone, clearly and in big and bold numbers. This sign should be easily located and noticeable by children of reading age, in case an emergency occurs. Call the number that applies to emergency at hand - e.g., the hospital for physical injuries, the fire department for fire breakouts, the police in case of robbery, etc. In case help is not immediately available, running for help to neighboring houses is the best thing to do.

Instruction Chart

  1. Display a chart with instructions and pictures in a prominent place, such as the wall, door or refrigerator door. It is not always easy to keep your head clear in an emergency. If you forget something important, the chart will prompt and instruct you on a step-by step basis.
