Cell phones are a great resource to have in case of emergency. In fact, most have a way to make an emergency call without opening the phone itself. That has been happening a lot lately. Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp says that the dispatchers have gotten tons of those unintentional emergency calls where the owner of the phone doesn’t realize what happened.
Sheriff Kettelkamp says a lot of these accidental calls they get are from phones sitting in cup holders that just happen to hit the right button.
While the calls are accidental, Sheriff Kettelkamp says they do take up the time of a dispatcher who could be handling an emergency situation.
Sheriff Kettelkamp appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
