General Information

How it works - what happens when you dial 911:
Most of us take this important task for granted; a guarantee that there will be someone else on the other end of the phone ready to help at a moments notice.

As simple as it may seem, the system of 911 is both very clever and very sophisticated. Lets take a look at what happens when you call.

This is how it works.



When you dial into 9-1-1:



  • The signal goes to the phone companies database.

  • There it finds out the information that you supply the phone company when you start service.

  • Then your signal, along with the information is sent to us in the form of Automatic Name and Location information (ANI/ALI).
Our 9-1-1 Center is now Phase II compatible with most cellular telephone companies. After 15-20 seconds we can send a signal to your phone to request your GPS coordinates. With most cellular carriers we can determine your location with in about 50 meters.

When you dial 9-1-1 please stay on the line, do not hang up!
