When not to call 911

Never Call 9-1-1 As A Joke

The equipment we have indicates where the call is coming from. We are required to verify if there is an emergency, if that can't be done, we will send a Law Enforcement Officer out to check. This could engage an officer's services when he or she might be needed on a real emergency. Abusing 911 in this manner could cost someone's life. It is a criminal offense to intentionally abuse 911.

Never Call To Ask For Information

Use 411 For directory assistance, and call the non-emergency number for the public safety agency you wish to reach.

Never Call 9-1-1 Just To See If It Works
