Teach your children how to use a smart phone! Cell phones today don’t look like they used to. Look at your phone from your child’s point of view. Does he/she know how to find the dialer? Do they know how to call 9-1-1 if the cell phone requires a password? All children should know how to get help in an emergency.
The Scottsdale Police Communications Section has created a Babysitter Emergency Contact Form for parents or guardians to hang on your fridge or place by the phone for use in case of an emergency. Find it here: http://bit.ly/ZAtiBo along with other information about our Communications Section.
