Halloween is just around the corner! It’s a fun and spooky time of the year with many exciting events – which is why it’s also important to know when and when not to call 9-1-1.
Here are some tips on what to do when calling 9-1-1:
- Listen carefully, speak clearly and try to remain calm.
- Stay on the line and follow instructions. Your 9-1-1 call taker will stay on the line with you to make sure your call is answered by the agency you need. Don’t hang up until the call taker says it’s okay to.
