How to Call for Help

Stay calm. Always speak clearly and slowly when making an emergency call. If possible, enlist the aid of a Japanese speaker in placing the call. These Japanese phrases will be helpful if the operator does not understand English.

Remember: Stay on the line! DO NOT hang up until the operator hangs up.
