Triple Zero (000) is Australia's primary emergency number for requesting assistance from police, fire, or ambulance services. There are many examples, from both Australia and overseas, where children as young as four years old have played a pivotal role in saving lives and property by calling Triple Zero and providing the information needed to obtain assistance from the emergency services. Knowing when and how to call Triple Zero is an important life skill that all children should learn.
The Triple Zero Kids’ Challenge is a comprehensive set of educational resources that provide children with the essential knowledge and skills they need to become competent, confident and responsible users of the Triple Zero emergency service number.
