The section “On the Phone” explains to children what happens when you call 999, and the impact of calling when it is not an emergency and hoax calls.   It covers the services you can ask for, the questions you might be asked, the importance of knowing your location, and helpful things like unlocking the door if possible.   For the older ones, we also explain how to call 999 from someone else’s phone if it is locked, and about What 3 Words, the locator app.
