IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR DIALING 9-1-1 FROM A CELLULAR PHONE

  • Did you know that the majority of 9-1-1 calls are made with a cell phone?
  • Did you also know that if you dial 9-1-1 from a cell phone then your emergency call could be routed to a different county's 9-1-1 center, such as Philadelphia, depending on your location and your cell phone carrier?
  • Calls to 9-1-1 get routed to the 9-1-1 call center in the county where the cell tower that your call originates is physically located.
  • If you dial 9-1-1 from a cell phone in Abington, always start the conversation with "I am in Abington Township, Montgomery County" so that the call taker can transfer you to the Montgomery County 9-1-1 Center if need be.
