Mission Pediatrics – Safety Seconds – Emergency’s

What is an emergency? When your child starts preschool they are old enough to start learning what an emergency is. Sometimes no matter what we do, emergencies and accidents happen. Children need to know what an emergency is and information to give when asked.

  • What type of emergency?
  • Is there a fire?
  • Is someone hurt?
  • Do you need the police?
  • What is your name?
  • Where are you calling from?

Children should be taught how to use a phone and how to Call 911 and ask for help.

Safety only takes seconds and seconds save lives.
