Police warning of 911 hoax

Police warning of 911 hoax story image
HASTINGS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Hastings Police are working to make sure citizens are aware of a 911 hoax that has begun to circulate.

In it, people are being urged to call 1-1-2, instead of 9-1-1 for emergency services, stating that people will receive faster emergency response.

112 is a European emergency number, and several wireless providers offer mobile phones that can use either system depending on the user's location.

Authorities say that if a person dials 1-1-2 within the United States, the call may not go through, and even if it does, the call would be delayed.

The emergency call would have to be converted to 911, and then routed to the appropriate 911 call center.

Anyone calling for emergency assistance in the United States should always dial 911 for the fastest and most effective response.
