How to Prevent Accidentally Calling 911

911 dispatchers follow up each 911 hang up with a phone call. If you don’t answer when they call back, they will find out who the number is registered to, triangulate it if it’s a cell phone and send an officer out to ensure the caller is okay.

If you accidentally dial 911, stay on the line and let the dispatchers know that it was an accident. Or when they call you back, please answer. You won’t get in trouble!

Four simple steps to reduce abandoned and non-emergency calls on 911:

  1. Use a screen lock. Most abandoned calls came from cell phones.
  2. Know when to call 911 and when to use the non-emergency number: 780-350-2107 (see above).
  3. Recycle your old cell phone. Even though your phone is no longer registered, doesn’t have a plan and is now your child’s favourite toy, as long as it has a battery charge – 911 can be dialed.
  4. Don’t use speed dial for 911 as it increases the risk of accidental dialing.
