It’s important to take the right steps during emergencies.
Three children did just that.
Ayleen of Dale City, Lyla of Manassas Park, and Mariah of Woodbridge were recognized at a “Make the Right Call” ceremony.
Held on Public Safety Day on September 21, the program occurred at the McCoart Government Center in Woodbridge, according to a release from the Prince William County Police Department (PWCPD).
Members of the PWCPD and the Prince William County Fire and Rescue System manage the Office of Public Safety Communications.
“The Make the Right Call program shows the importance of knowing how to properly use 9-1-1 when emergency help is needed,” Fire Chief Tim Keen said in a release.
Ayleen was nominated for remaining calm and offer medical instructions.
Lyla, who also stayed tranquil, helped answer questions.
Mariah assisted with obtaining an address and carried out medical guidance.
“We congratulate these young people for properly using 9-1-1 to help save lives,” Police Chief Barry Barnard said in a release.
