What you need to be able to tell the Telecommunicator?
If you find yourself in need of emergency Police, Fire, or Ambulance assistance, your 911 call may prove to be the most important phone call you will ever make. It is important to know the address where help is needed. If you do not know, and cannot ask anyone around you, be prepared to describe the location well enough that the Telecommunicator can help determine where you are; without a proper location it is impossible to send help in a timely manner.
