Topanga Tim's Survival Tips— Calling 9-1-1 From a Cell Phone

 

Yesterday Hillside Henry told me of a bit of trouble he had. He came upon an accident on Topanga Canyon Blvd. and pulled out his cell phone to call 911. Well, he never got through. Sometimes 911 doesn’t work so well from a cell phone. Henry got so frustrated waiting that he called his daughter who put the call through on a landline. Pretty smart thinking. He also could have called the Highway Patrol directly at (818) 888-0980.
