911 dispatcher Sarah McCallister called the two young girls seeking help for their mother last month "very intelligent."
Crouching, she shook hands with 4-year-old Mackenzie and 5-year-old Demari McCray, who called her after her mother had a seizure.

Whereas, Demari provided important information to dispatch; and
Whereas, Mackenzie held her mother's hand and sang "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" to comfort her.
