How to Report Emergencies
    Dial 911
    Stay calm and speak clearly.
    Tell the dispatcher what the emergency is.
    The location of the emergency and the nearest crossroad.
    A phone number the dispatcher can call you back if the line is disconnected.
    Listen closely to the dispatcher’s instructions. Do not hang the phone up.

The dispatcher may ask you questions to verify the information you gave them. This is very important with the number of cell phones and broadband phones.
