Tell the FM, “I need help, I am not able to help you. I am going to call 911 for help. Please help me use the crisis plan we have discussed to prepare for this moment.”
Simply remove yourself from the situation and Dial 911.
You may decide to NOT intervene.
If you need to call 911 because you feel unsafe or can not manage the situation, Call 911. This is not a failure on your part.
