When NOT To Call 911

Do not call 9-1-1:

  • For information
  • For directory assistance
  • When you're bored and just want to talk
  • For court information
  • As a prank

When should I NOT call 9-1-1?
You should not call 9-1-1 to ask for a phone number. You shouldn’t call 9-1-1 to ask when the parade starts, or to complain about a neighbor’s loud music.  These are legitimate concerns, but are not emergencies.
