They are too young to understand dialing 911.
I am totally parinoid about being in a car accident so I will not leave the house without it on. I have even turned around and gone back to the house to get it after pulling out of our neighborhood.

I also made a list of phone numbers with a cut out picture of each person next to the number. So the picture of Nana said "NANA 1 5 0 8....etc". I did not use dahses for fear of confusing them. I drew a picture of a fire, a red cross and a police badge and wrote 9 1 1 in bold letters next to that. We talked alot about what makes an emergency and what they need to tell the dispatcher if they had to call. And of course, when NOT to call.
We talked about it often, not jsut once or twice.
Knowing they grasped this information made my feel far less anxious about it.
