Don't hang up until the dispatcher says it's okay.
No Texting or Photos to 9-1-1.
Some 9-1-1 centers have bilingual 9-1-1 call takers and dispatchers. All dispatchers can add on an interpreter through the use of a language line service. The language line offers translation in more than 170 different languages.
A non-English caller may hear a short conversation in English, then some clicking sounds, as an interpreter is added to the 9-1-1 call. Please do not hang up before the call has been completed.
