Emergency Cell Phone Calling

In case of an Emergency dial 911 immediately. If possible, call 911 from a landline, but if you are on a cellphone please follow these directions:

  1. If your phone has GPS location tracking, turn that on (if not on by default) and use your phone’s map app to determine your location. Most all newer cellphones have this function.
  2. If your phone does not have this function or you don’t know how to use it, be as specific as possible about your location. Identify local intersections, buildings, landmarks or anything else that can help direct First Responders.
  3. Remain on the line with the 911 Dispatcher until help arrives.
