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. THIS IS CORRECT. They'll be asking you questions to confirm your safety, and won't be asking you for your SIN number or banking information (eye roll). You'll likely be asked if you can speak freely and would be able to tell the operator if you were in trouble.
Also, your cell phone will not show a 911 call made in your call history. It is that way for safety, in case you are in a duress situation, so that your phone does not show you've dialed 911. In addition to that, many phones are set to dial 911 simply by holding down a single key...as you might imagine, this can cause butt dials and purse dials very easily. Check with your cell service provider to confirm this.
If a 911 operator is calling you back, and you hang up on them in ignorance because you do not realize your phone has dialed without your knowledge, there are procedures that they are required to follow to confirm your safety. You might consider how much time this takes away from answering other, legitimate, life and death emergency calls. Answer the safety questions and carry on with your day.

recvd 2 calls no mssg and no, I did NOT dial 911.
Called twice in a row, left no message. The phone was off for several days due to being out of town then once turned on was sitting on the coffee table charging with no one touching it. I did NOT dial 911!
If this is a legit police number E-comm better look into this!
A scam - never divulge any personal/financal info to these clowns 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. ???? Received call at 8:37pm PDT 2 July 2009.No message left. Received call at 8:37pm PDT 2 July 2009.

You guys are funny... so skeptical, reminds me of me...Anyways, I'm a cop and got a phone call from this number too... didn't recognize it because it's from the office that receives 911 calls on behalf of several police agencies. I checked my voicemail and it was a friend of mine, so I called back thru my *secret* number and it's 100% legit, I swear! If you call 911 and hang up they'll call you back... if you don't answer, I come knocking on your door... You make the choice (I am pretty cute in a uniform) ;p Earlier this afternoon, I received this call, (604) 215-4934. He said: its emergency call, the guy caller is said careful with this number.I need more information's for this phone number: (604) 215-4934?????????????????????? It is the Vancouver Police Department dispatcher's number. I got a call from this number and I decided to call it back, the operator says it is not in service.... weird because it just called me
