Are you confident your child would know what to do in an emergency?
The parents of five-year-old Sienna Adderley made sure that she knew how to dial 999.
The schoolgirl recently had to call emergency services for help after her mum, 32-year-old Katie, fell unconscious at the family home in Rugby in Warwickshire.
Police say the youngster stayed on the phone, remaining calm and talking to the operator.
Sienna also watched over her younger brother Ryley, aged one, while waiting for help to arrive.
PC James Graham attended the incident and said: “The caller was five-year-old Sienna reporting that her mum was ill.”
He added: “That in its self is amazing. All the attending officers thought she was fantastic and a super star. She just took it all in her stride.”
It is understood Warwickshire police are planning to present the brave youngster with a certificate later this month at a special school assembly.
Most children will have a great awareness of the emergency services with many children pointing out police cars, fire engines and ambulances.
Aim High Training UK, which provides First Aid training across the South East and East Midlands says children are never too young to be told about the significance of the 999 number.
The training company also says it is a good idea to teach your child their full name and address as soon as you can and the name and number of an adult nearby.
