What if I call 911 by mistake?
If you mistakenly dial 911, please do not hang up. Your information still shows up on our screens. If you are not on the line when the operator answers, they will call you back. We may have to send a police officer to your home to make sure there is not a problem. Time spent calling back or dispatching emergency personnel to check on you because of hang-ups on the 911 line wastes resources and it takes away from the people who truly do need help.
