FOR ANY EMERGENCY IN THE US OR CANADA
911 works via satellites so a local dispatcher will respond despite you having a different area code than the emergency’s location. However, once a dispatcher picks up please verify your location as not all parts of the country use the same level of technology. In some jurisdictions, the use of this number is reserved for true emergency circumstances only and use in a non-emergency may result in a criminal charge.
