What happens when I call 9-1-1?
You will reach the dispatch center in the jurisdiction from which you are calling. If you are calling from a landline, the dispatch center will receive a screen showing the number you are calling from, the address, and the name associated with that phone number. The dispatcher will confirm that information to eliminate any errors.
