9-1-1 Public Awareness
Stop Butt Dialing 9-1-1 Campaign
Remember to always lock the screen on your mobile device, so you do not become a statistic.
- 40% of all 9-1-1 calls are non-emergency calls
- Most are from unlocked mobile phones in pockets or purses.
- Keep your mobile phone locked at all times, so your butt does not dial 9-1-1.
- Do not program 9-1-1 into your phone. It's against the law!
- Accidental calls tie up valuable resources that are needed for real emergencies.
