Calling 911

Traditionally, SMCCCD has required those dialing 911 on District phones to dial 9 for an outside line, resulting in 9+911. 

Starting today, we will reinstitute a straight 911 dialing scheme.  PLEASE use care when dialing to avoid misdialing 911.  If you do accidentally dial 911, STAY ON THE LINE and tell the operator it was a mistake.   Hanging up requires them to dispatch first responders who could otherwise be responding to actual emergencies.  

Additionally,

·         Public Safety will also be alerted and respond to 911 calls from District phones.

·         Dialing 9+911 will continue to work as well.
