However, when people abuse 9-1-1, or tie up phone lines with non-emergency calls, someone who really needs help may not be able to get through. Don't put lives in danger. Know when to "Make the Right Call."
Some people aren't sure when to dial 9-1-1. 9-1-1 is for Real Emergency Situations - when a response from police, fire or medical personnel is needed immediately.
