A Critical But Neglected Skill: Making the 9-1-1 Call

9-1-1 Call Cover

Hi, it’s Austin Davis, here with another tip for YOU, our Concealed Coalition community.

If you carry a gun for personal protection and self-defense, there are a lot of things you want to practice, such as how to shoot accurately, how to draw quickly, and how to go from a ready position to full extension.

But there’s one skill set that most people neglect…

A Critical Skill

That one skill? The 9-1-1 call.

You see, of all the defensive skill sets you’re going to have, you don’t know if you’re going to have to draw from a holster or shoot on the move. One thing I can almost guarantee though, is that at some point you’re going to have to make a 9-1-1 call. 
When this happens that 9-1-1 call is the most important phone call of your life.

Planning a 9-1-1 Call

You need to think about what you’re going to say before the moment of the call arrives.

You see, you and the dispatcher have completely different responsibilities. The goal for the dispatcher is to get as much information as possible out of you, while you only want to give as much as you need to bring the help you need.

This is why I want you to practice your 9-1-1 call. It’s a perishable skill that needs to be practiced because when you need it, you don’t want to ad lib it.

And that my friends, is your tip of the day.
