How do I avoid accidental dials to 911?
- 911 call centers receive thousands of accidental calls to 911, which could cause a delay in service for real emergencies.
- Lock your cell phone so it doesn’t accidentally dial 911.
- Take the battery out before allowing children to play with an old cell phone as even without service they still can dial 911.
