ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo.– The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office is reminding parents to teach children how and when to call 911 after they received a call from a young boy named Isaiah.
Take a listen:
Dispatcher: Arapahoe 911. What is the address of your emergency?
Isaiah: Um, maybe you can go to my preschool to check out how good it is?
Isaiah: Is it okay if I hang up on you?
Dispatcher: No, don’t hang up on me. Are your parents home?
Isaiah: Um, my parents are home.
Dispatcher: Can I talk to your mom or dad?
Isaiah: You can talk to my dad.
Dispatcher: OK. Get your dad for me. I want to talk to your dad.
Isaiah: Hello. This is Isaiah’s dad.
Dispatcher: Isaiah, I know it’s still you…
Dispatchers from the sheriff’s office say this phone call made their day. However, they want to use it as a reminder to parents to teach kids about how and when to dial 911.
