TYPES OF 911 MISUSE

Close to 50% of every call made to 9-1-1 is NOT an emergency. These non-emergency calls are made by people from all age groups. The consequences of 9-1-1 misuse are costly to budgets, cause property damage, crimes and most importantly, personal injury and loss of lives. Individuals with real emergencies encounter a busy signal when lines are impacted. People call 9-1-1 for a multitude of non-emergency reasons such as:

Information

Asking information for road conditions, weather issues, natural disasters when emergency services are not required, community event information, etc.

Inadvertent calls

i.e. sitting on cell phone or tossing cell phone in a purse or bag, accidentally activating 9-1-1 preset button

Non-Emergency Situations

animal related
issues such as injuries, barking dog, cat in tree, etc.

Redundant calls

reporting an accident when emergency help is on scene / en route, testing 911 function on phone, prank calls, curious / lonely calls
