Random FAQs

Do not hang up! Remain on the line (even if you are unsure at first if the call went through) and tell the Telecommunicator that the call was a mistake. If you hang up prior to your misdialed 9-1-1 call being answered, the call taker must then send law enforcement and attempt to call you back. This takes up precious time that the call taker could use to answer another call that may be an actual emergency. A common misconception is that you will get "in trouble" for accidentally dialing 9-1-1. This is simply not true! Accidents happen. We understand!

Yes! Even if the phone does not have a service plan from a provider you can still call 9-1-1.

NO. We do not give out names and addresses to the general public. This information is shared with public service agencies, but only for their official duties.

Teaching children the proper use of 9-1-1 is very important. Some of the things you can do as a parent is to cover these basic pointers:

  • What an emergency is and when to call 9-1-1.
  • That it is against the law to call 9-1-1 as a joke or prank.
  • If they call 9-1-1 by mistake, do not hang-up, they will not be in trouble for making a mistake.
  • To remain calm and answer all questions they're asked.
  • Not to be afraid to call 9-1-1 if they need to.

Nothing is forever, but it is intended to establish permanent addresses for all residents. There have been several address discrepancies located in all areas of Pike County and the addressing staff are continually working to correct issues as they are identified. If you think your address or another address in your area is incorrect please do not hesitate to contact the Pike County 9-1-1 Business Office at 334-670-6600 so that an Addressing Technician can verify the address. An incorrect address not only effects that structure but also the surrounding area.
