When you can't Speak outloud but need to call for help and how to do so.

How to get help in a dangerous situation if you can't talk out loud

Ni'Kesia Pannell

If you are unable to communicate verbally with a 911 operator because you are in a dangerous situation, there are still ways you can try to reach out for help.

  • When making an emergency call during a dangerous situation, you'll want to use as many verbal cues as possible.

  • In some areas, you can text a certain number to receive help.

  • If you have a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) on your phone, be sure to update your 9-1-1 address.

In the US, people are taught to dial 9-1-1 if there's an emergency or if they're in some sort of danger. Calling this number is one of the quickest and most efficient ways to get the help you need. But, in some dangerous situations, placing a clear and thorough emergency call isn't possible.

In cases where you are unable to outwardly call for help without putting yourself or others in danger, there are a few ways you may be able to reach out for help.

To start, you'll want to use as many verbal clues as possible to tip off the responders

 

Try to make it clear that you didn't accidentally dial the number.

 

"If you chose to dial 9-1-1 and are unable to speak normally to the operator because of safety concerns, any verbal or audio 'clues' you provide can be helpful," said Lynne Houserman, vice president of emergency call handling at Motorola Solutions.

9-1-1 call centers in the US receive over 240 million calls each year and 80% of them are from cell phones. Of these calls, 30% are silent, abandoned or accidental. Because of this, Houserman said, "9-1-1 operators are trained to try to make contact with every caller and to listen to background audio to try to determine if the call is a 'butt-dial' or a legitimate police or medical emergency."

"You may be asked to take some action like 'press a number on your phone if you need help but cannot speak' as a part of this process," said Houserman.

But, you'll want to silence your ringer if you're in a situation where you don't want someone to know you're attempting to contact 9-1-1. She said most, if not all, call centers will call or text back when they receive a 911 call that was abandoned or had no audio. 

If you live in certain areas, you may even be able to text 9-1-1 for help, too

 

It might be easier for you to text than it is for you to make a phone call.

 

 

 

 

In instances when making a call really isn't possible at all, you can text the emergency number, depending on your location. Unfortunately, this service isn't available in all locations right now. You can find out if the 9-1-1 centers where you live are part of the approved areas list so that you can be as prepared as possible. 

"If you are unable to communicate verbally with a 9-1-1 operator because you are in a dangerous situation, you could try to text to 9-1-1," Houseman told INSIDER. "More and more of the 9-1-1 centers in the US are adopting the technology required to process text-to-911 calls every day, but the majority have not at this time."

If you attempt to text to 9-1-1 from an area where the service is not yet available, you'll be sent an automatic message advising you to contact emergency services using a different method. You can check to see if the 9-1-1 centers in your area accept 9-1-1 calls by referring to the FCC's website.

Even if your area has the text-to-9-1-1 availability, it is still advised that you use the dialing method as your primary option for assistance if you can. This is especially encouraged if you are in a situation where your time with a phone is limited, as you don't want to run the risk of not being able to get in touch with responders.

If you have a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone, be sure to update your 9-1-1 address

5c056b7d5930f81bd86eb9d6.webp

It can make it easier for dispatchers to find your location.

Even if you're not presently in a dangerous situation, you can prepare for one by adjusting a setting on your phone.

"If a 9-1-1 operator decides it necessary to dispatch police, fire or medical to you, determining your location without being able to speak to you is important," said Houseman. "If you have a VoIP [Voice over Internet Protocol] phone or use your mobile phone on a WiFi network for dialing, make sure that your '9-1-1 address' is always updated to reflect your current location."

She said most service providers have instructions for how to do this on their website and if it's not clear, a quick call to customer service can help. 

Location information will automatically be sent to the 9-1-1 operator when 9-1-1 is dialed from your mobile device on a cellular network, but its accuracy may vary based on factors such as terrain, urban density, handset or OS provider, etc.

  • File a Restraining Order

If you're in an emergency situation, call 911. DO NOT WAIT!

If you've been a victim of domestic abuse and want to take legal action, you may be able to file for a protective order. Protective orders are also known as restraining orders or injunctions.

State courts issue protective orders. These legal orders demand that your abuser:

  • Stops hurting or threatening you

  • Stays a certain distance away from you

The process for obtaining a protective order differs from state-to-state. Your local police and court can help you get the process started. Contact your state, county, or municipal court for more information.

Generally, you have to fill out paperwork and submit it to the county courthouse. If you need protection right away, a judge may issue a temporary restraining order. To get a longer-term order, your judge may require a full court hearing and/or your abuser's presence.

A protective order can be enforced by police. If necessary, the order can include special provisions like:

  • Custody of children

  • Continued financial support

  • Forcing the abuser to leave a home

In some states, a protective order requires the abuser to surrender all firearms.

You can file complaints about misconduct by law enforcement officers and by judges.

Complaints About Police Officers

911 Prank Call and False Reporting – Can I go to jail for making one?
 

It is a crime in The United States Nation Wide to make a false 911 call. Depending on the facts of the case, a fake emergency report to 911 could be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. Per Penal Code 148.3 PC, it is a crime to:
 

  •   report or cause a report to be made,

  •  to certain government agencies,

  •  that an “emergency” exists,

  • knowing that the report is false.


An emergency report is any condition that results in, or could result in:
 

  •   response of an emergency vehicle, aircraft, or vessel (such as from the fire department, EMS, other dispatchers, etc.),

  • the evacuation of any area, building, structure, or vehicle, OR

  • activation of the Emergency Alert System.


A person who reports a false 911 emergency situation is guilty of a misdemeanor if they know that the report is false. The punishment could be up to:
 

  • one-year county jail,

  • a $1,000 fine.


A false 911 emergency call is a felony if the person making the call to the emergency number:
 

  • knows that the report is false,

  • knows or should know that the emergency response is likely to cause death or great bodily injury, AND

  • great bodily injury or death results due to the false report.


The punishment for a felony conviction under this law could be up to:
 

  • three years county jail time,

  • a $10,000 fine.  


A person convicted of prank calling 911 is also liable for the reasonable costs of any emergency services response.

There are several possible defenses for someone accused of making a false 911 call:

 

  •  mistaken identity (it wasn’t me),

  • good faith belief that the report was true

  • free speech.


Is a Prank 911 Call Also Called Swatting?
Sometimes. Swatting is when someone tries to create an emergency police response against another person under false pretenses. Swatters often do this by calling 911 to falsely report a violent crime like a shooting or hostage situation. The intent of the prank callers is to get a Swat Team response.

Swatters may think what they are doing is a prank, but it can have serious consequences. Swatting occupies law enforcement response teams, making them unavailable to respond to real emergencies.

Is it a Felony to Make a Fake 911 Call?
It could be, depending on what is said to the 911 operator. A false 911 emergency call is a felony if the person making the prank phone call:

  • knows or should know that the emergency response is likely to cause death or great bodily injury, AND

  • great bodily injury or death results due to the false report.


The punishment for a felony under this law could be up to:
