911 Misdials
If you misdial 911, stay on the line and talk to the call taker. Explain that you misdialed and that everything is okay. If the telecommunicator calls you back, do not hang up. This will generate a police response. The intent of the response is to check your residence and make sure everything is okay. It is important to teach children when to use 911 and that by calling 911 when there is no emergency takes personnel away from a real emergency.

Thank you for visiting our website and for sharing your thoughts with us. If you have suggestions, please email us your name, address, and phone number (optional). Do not include requests for service, as it may be an extended period of time before a response is received from this link. Anything requiring immediate attention should be directed to us by phone.
