We (like lots of people) have canceled our landline & only use cell phones. I taught my boys this week how to make a phone call on my cell phone just in case something would happen. It's not as simple as picking up a land line phone & calling.
We talked about calling 911, reviewed our address, & also how to call my husband & grandparents. I hope they never have to use it, but now they know.
Just a safety tip for you.
