You can dial 9-1-1 from a Cellular Phone; however due to the nature of Cellular technologies your call may be routed differently than traditional phones. Depending on the service strength your call may be “bounced” to a 9-1-1 Center outside Dutchess County. Cellular phones with Global Positioning System (GPS) chips will assist the 9-1-1 Dispatcher in determining your general location.
In the meantime please consider the following:
Make sure your telephone is GPS equipped. If you are unsure contact your cellular provider’s local Service Center.
