East Lyme Public Safety – Tip of the Week

When calling 911 from your cell phone…

Always remember to tell the dispatcher what town you are calling from as well as the street address of your emergency. When calling 911 from your cell phone, the location of the nearest cell phone tower is what appears for your location on the dispatchers screen, not where you actually are. Please share this important information with all of your friends. In an emergency….every second counts!!
