Tips When Calling from Mobile/Cellular Telephone:
When calling from a cellular telephone,
it is recommended that you stop the vehicle on the side of the road before dialing! Remember that the communications
officers will not know where you are - so it's very important to let the dispatcher know exactly where the emergency
is located. You should be prepared to provide your direction of travel, the street name you are on, and/or physical
landmarks such as buildings or major intersections. You can report traffic accidents, reckless or
intoxicated drivers, medical emergencies, vehicle or building fires, drivers in distress or broken down, or any crime in progress
that you may witness.
Tips When Calling from Pay/Coin Telephones:
When calling from pay or coin telephones, it is
not necessary to deposit a quarter before calling 9-1-1. 9-1-1 is a free call from all pay or coin telephones!
