I was sent this shocking video about how important it is to teach your children how to call 999 in an emergency. It amazes me when I hear stories about how a child can make a life saving call at a very early age. I’ve taught my children how to do it on the landline, but in the day of the iPhone it’s not as easy. Having said that, it’s definitely something I’ll be doing this evening.

There’s an informative ‘Teach Your Child to Call 999’ sheet, and an info sheet that you can display in your house. You can download it here.
