Mis-dialing 9-1-1

If you dial 9-1-1 accidentally, stay on the line and advise the call-taker. If you hang up, the call-taker is required to call you back. If that call-taker cannot reach you or a busy signal is heard, the call-taker will send police if the caller's location is known.

Misdialed calls tie up emergency lines and police resources. Thank you for your assistance.
