Do you own one of the cell phones listed below? If so, Pinellas County 9-1-1 needs your help! In 2003, over 70,000 accidental calls to 9-1-1 were made by cell phone users. This happens when one of the models listed has the "9" key accidentally pressed or bumped and the phone is pre-programmed to call 9-1-1. Pinellas County 9-1-1 is working on a pilot program to reduce the numbers of these calls with a FREE button guard for people who own these model phones. This small, rubber button guard is placed around the "9" key and while it does not interfere with the normal operations of the phone, it will help prevent the key from being accidentally pressed. Thank you for helping your 9-1-1 Center help you!
