When my son was only 9 months old, I was carrying him in my arms and walking down the stairs to our basement. I slipped on something that was sitting on our wood stairs and I fell, dropping my son and he rolled all the way down the stairs and landed on our concrete basement floor, screaming. I can remember this moment vividly to this day. I had taught many first aid classes in the past. I knew how to call 911. I knew what to say to the dispatcher. But when its someone you know and/or love, panic can set in and you may just have a hard time making the call for help correctly. This is why it is important to teach your children how to call 911.
