How to Place a "Test" Call to Make Sure 911 Works Properly


  • Test a call to 911 to ensure emergency calls function



  1. Do not call and hang up
  2. When the 911 operator answers, immediately state this is not an emergency, this is a test call
  3. Please avoid calling 911 during peak hours, 6 AM to 9 AM and from 4 PM to 7 PM
  4. If possible go to a quiet area so the 911 operator can clearly hear you
