371F: Dial 9-1-1 in an Emergency

24-Page Flip-Book - Measures: 6¼" x 3¾"
Age: Preschool, Lower Elementary


Children as young as three years old can begin learning how and when to dial 9-1-1 in case of an emergency. Emergencies can be scary. Usually, an adult is around to help. But there may be instances where there isn’t an adult or the adult needs help. Someday it might be up to a child to get help fast.

Dial 9-1-1 in an Emergency explains how, why, and when to call for help in a variety of emergency scenarios. Vital information and helpful tips are fun to read in the telephone “texting format” as Firepup® and his Emergency Dispatcher friend discuss how to help save a life by dialing 9-1-1. The slim telephone size of the book makes flipping the pages easy for young hands.

Audio Narration Included

"Dial 9-1-1 in an Emergency!" now features a QR (Quick Response) Code; a black digital square on the front cover. To hear the story Firefighters, teachers, parents/adults, and kids can scan the QR Code with a phone or tablet QR reader, or type the URL printed below the square into most internet capable device. You're asked to load an mp3 audio file and you play it just like any audio file, over and over again.

You can listen to the story told by Firepup® and other characters in the book. This “support reading” is not only fun to listen to but helps kids who struggle with reading. These kids often lose the point of a story because they are concentrating on reading individual words. By listening to the book as they read along, the barrier of the printed word is eliminated making learning possible. Listening to the story while reading along encourages a deeper learning experience for all kids including children with reading disabilities.

Adult supervision recommended.
