got a message from this number asking if I was from victim services. tried calling back and it said number not in service. a voice message left on my service was a very quickly rattled off message about my vehicle having been removed and then, oddly, about it now being safe to drive. My vehicle was where it always was, and there is nothing illegal about the way it is parked or being driven. ???? If you get a call from this number it means that your phone has dialled 911. Protocol for receiving 911 calls with no one on the line (pocket dials, abandoned calls (hang ups) is to call back - minimum of two times. The 4934 number does not accept incoming calls because the 911 centre only receives calls from the 911 line or local non-emergency calls. If you dial 911 it will NOT show up in your call/log history to prevent future accidental calls. If you call back on non-emergency and have to wait it means non-emergency operators are helping to answer emergency calls which take first priority. They cannot "clear" your phone number...any call that comes into a 911 centre will register and they will call it back each and every time and if they know your location (e.g. landline) police can be sent as well to check on you. What people should do to prevent pocket dials is...store cells carefully (in a case is best), keep them locked, don't preprogram 911 into any phone, if you dial accidentally, don't hang up - stay on line (if you know you have dialled by mistake) and ask your cell phone manufacturer to produce phones with better safeguards. These things will greatly assist all 911 centres. I made a non-emergency call to the VPD and after I made the report and hung up, a few minutes later this number called. Didn't answer as I was away from my cell, looks like it was probably the police. I'm not sure why they would call back right after I talked to them on the non-emergency line. Received call at 8:37pm PDT 2 July 2009.
No message left.
After calling 911 to report an accident I received a follow up call from this number. It is 911. It should be taken seriously and if you believe it could be spoofed number they should be able to provide a number to call back. I got a missed call from this number as well, but it was my home phone. I do own a Blackberry, but have no missed calls on there. I checked my home phone's list of recently dialed numbers and there was definitely no 911 call.I did file a report a couple months ago with the Maple Ridge RCMP, but this doesn't seem related since apparently it's a VPD number. Same thing happened to me while in the office. Was cleaning the phone and must have dialled 911. RCMP called that they recived a call from this number and asked if everything is fine. It is certainly the RCMP. The ploce car immediately came by and checked that everything was okay. Not a scam. Just replyng to my own posting here:
I called the Van Police Non-emerg line just now and told them what happened. They confirmed that it IS their number. She even told me that if you tried calling it back it would say it is out of service as it is a dispatch numeber only. Cell phones can go into "non emerg call" mode and dial 911 even if your phone is locked. And apparently it doesnt' show up on your call display that you called. It's all good...call van police non-emerg yourself if you're worried, cause that's what i did! Dont' worry people... your info is safe if you gave it out. That's what i was so worried about...
