Can I dial 911 from any phone?

911 can be dialed from any home, business, coin or cellular phone. It is always a free call. Some locations, such as businesses with PBX systems, require a 1 or 2 digit access number to get an outside line before you can dial 911. Be sure that you learn the access number if one is required at your workplace. Directions to dial 911 should be posted on all telephones.
