“My Baby is Dead.” Those are the four words an emergency operator heard from an upset little girl in Stearns County. The 911 dispatcher in Stearns County actually had to call the girl back after the first call was disconnected, and after hearing about the dead baby, emergency crews were dispatched to the residence.

Props to everyone involved in law enforcement and to all of the first responders – my anxiety levels skyrocket just thinking about the tragic calls they receive.

Fortunately, no one was dead. There wasn’t even a baby. Bring Me The News reported about the incident and said when deputies arrived on the scene they found, "that the 911 caller was a 3-year-old child and that the concern she had was that she was unable to wake her doll."

Gov1.com has a helpful list of 8 tips to use when teaching young children how and when to call 911. They include making sure your child knows your address, phone number, and the full name of both of their parents, staying on the line and answering all of the dispatcher's questions, and teaching them how to use a cell phone and a landline. Read all of the tips here.
