What if I call 911 by accident?

If you call 911 by accident, please stay on the phone and let the dispatcher know that the call was made by accident. If you disconnect prior to speaking with a dispatcher, the dispatcher may call you back to verify that you do not have an emergency. If they are unable to reach you upon call back, they may send an officer to your business or residence to confirm there is no emergency.
