In the event of an Emergency, do your kids know what to do?
Sit down with your children and discuss with them what to do in case of an emergency. Start with practising what number they need to call. Discuss how to dial 000 and what help to ask for.
Practice scenarios with them to build familiarity and confidence. Fill in your address, as well as any other relevant contact details and place in an easily accessible area. A good idea is to place one copy next to the home phone and one copy near the front and back door.
Other great emergency procedures that can be practised are evacuation drills in the event of a fire and what to do for a home invasion.
Don’t forget to practice these routinely with your children, it may be the one thing that saves their life or someone else’s.
