Why are callers sometimes provided another number to call when 9-1-1 is dialed?
Dispatchers are trained to determine if a situation requires emergency assistance. Callers who call 9-1-1 for general information (i.e., to request a telephone number, weather report, school closings, etc.) will be asked to call back the non-emergency telephone number (706) 695-6222 to free 9-1-1 lines in the event of a true emergency.
