New 10-minute mini-lesson focuses on calling 9-1-1 from a mobile phone


Por Lisa Braxton

The majority of 9-1-1 calls are made from mobile phones these days. It’s important for kids to know how to use them to call 9-1-1. But this can be challenging because of the different types of mobile phones.

NFPA’s new 10-minute mini-lesson, “9-1-1 on the Go: Using a Mobile Phone to Report an Emergency,” is designed for children in first grade and up with their families. By the end of the lesson participants should be able to override a mobile phone passcode in order to call 9-1-1 during an emergency.

The 10-minute mini-lessons are for fire and life safety educators who only have a short amount of time to make a presentation. They include an introduction with ideas to hook the audience, the body of the presentation, and techniques for wrapping up the lesson in a concise manner.

This mini-lesson includes messaging on home escape planning and what to do when the smoke alarm sounds.
