911 is meant to connect you to help in serious emergencies. Get on the line, and let the 911 dispatcher know what the emergency is . If you ordinarily use special access services (like TTY) with your phone, contact your service provider for information about the best way to contact 911 in an emergency.

According to 911 .gov if you’re not sure whether the situation is a true emergency, officials recommend calling 911 and letting the call -taker determine whether you need emergency help. A copy must also be sent to the police department with jurisdiction where the accident occurred.
