Can I call 9-1-1 from my cell phone?

-A A +A

A.  Yes!

You will be connected to a Massachusetts State Police communication center first. Then, provided you are in Waltham, you will be transferred to the Waltham 9-1-1 center for further assistance. We may ask you the same questions as the initial call taker, but that is to make sure that we are getting the right help to you.
