This caught my attention!
Child in the news, sang his address for 911 operator...

This is how I recommend you teach toddlers, preschoolers to memorize a favored number or address, use a known tune with your rhymed word to make a safety song. My grandson uses his Dad's cell number, the number ends in a one, so we ended the song with" that's my Daddy I'm his son!"
Try it, let me know how it works!
