Can I place a test 911 call?

911 can be test dialed to ensure the proper ANI and ALI information are being transmitted, or to show a child what to expect when dialing 911, PROVIDED the Police Department is aware of the test call PRIOR to dialing 911. You should call the Police Station at 508-653-2424 and provide your name, address, phone number and reason for wanting to place the test call. The Desk Officer will tell you either to place the test call, or to call back, if it is not a convenient time to do the test.
