What if I call 911 by mistake?


If you call 9-1-1 by mistake, DO NOT HANG UP.
Stay on the line and tell the dispatcher that everything is all right.
If a caller to 911 hangs up without stating the problem, the caller must be contacted in order to ensure that no actual emergency exits.
This may involve the dispatching of an officer to your home or place of business in order to ensure that a problem does not exist.
One common misconception that citizens have about dialing 911 by mistake is they will somehow get into trouble. This is not true.
