When You Call 9-1-1
To help dispatchers prioritize your call and to provide the responding officers with the information they need, everyone is asked a standard set of questions. Your dispatcher will need to know:
  1. Location of the problem: Even though your telephone number and address should be shown on the dispatcher's console, we will want to confirm that the address is correct. Also, you may be calling from a location that is different from the address where you are calling. Be sure to give your telephone number and extension to the dispatcher.
  2. Type of problem: The Dispatcher will need to know if you are reporting an emergency or something that is not an emergency. You will be asked for a basic description of what occurred and, if applicable, when the incident happened.
  3. Give the dispatcher all of the information available: Do not leave out information because you don’t think that it is important. The more we know about an incident, the more effective we can be in helping you.
  4. Medical Emergencies Initial: During the call the dispatcher will ask for information about the patient that is helpful to the paramedics.
Tips to Remember
If you call 9-1-1 by mistake, do not hang up! Tell the Dispatcher that you called by mistake and that you do not have an emergency. Any time a dispatcher receives a 911 “hang up,” the caller must be contacted to be sure that no actual emergency exists. This may require that an officer be needlessly dispatched to your home or office to ensure the well being of all persons there. When calling from a cellular phone or remote location, be aware of mile markers, streets, and cross streets, so we can better pinpoint where the emergency is.
