What if I am calling from a cellular phone?
Midland PSAP can receive cellular phone calls from 17 surrounding counties. At this time the Enhanced 911 ANI/ALI (Automatic Number Identifier/Automatic Location Identifier) system is unable to give the locations of cellular calls. After you tell us what type of response you are needing, please give us a location: the name of the city, a mile marker on the interstate highway, a highway name, etc. so we will transfer you to the correct responding agency. Please do not hang up, we will stay on the line with you until the transfer is completed.
