What Happens If I Accidentally Dial 911?
Please stay on the line! The dispatcher’s just need to make sure it was an accidental dial and that you do not need help. They will need to verify your name and address. If you do not stay on the line the dispatchers will need to attempt to call you back and if they still cannot reach you they will need to send the officers out to check your welfare. Accidental calls, especially from cell phone "pocket dials," tie up the dispatchers and 911 lines, adding to the burden of real emergency calls they receive. Do not allow children to play with your old phones (as they can still dial 911) and make sure you take preventative measures to make sure 911 cannot be accidentally dialed from your pocket or purse.
