What happens if I accidentally dial 911?

If you mistakenly reach 911, please do not hang up before the 911 Dispatcher answers the phone. The information from your phone still enters our system. If you aren’t on the phone when the Dispatcher answers, she or he will call you back. The time spent calling people back who have inadvertently dialed 911 takes time away from people who need emergency help.
