911 Cell Phone Bank



About 911 Cell Phone Bank^Arrow to Top^

Each year over 100 million people upgrade their old cell phones. Most simply toss them in a drawer and forget about them. Our mission is to maximize the benefits of retired cell phones while minimizing their environmental impact. Reusing cell phones ensures that the greatest possible value is recovered and quite literally gives old phones new life.

To that end, in May of 2004, the 911 Cell Phone Bank was created to provide an ongoing and readily available source of 911 emergency cell phones and funds to meet the unexpected and urgent needs of participating law enforcement and affiliated victim services agencies.

The Clallam County Sheriff's Office has partnered with the Cell Phone Bank to provide an easy and affordable method for qualifying residents to have access to the 911 emergency network at no charge.

To date, the 911 Cell Phone Bank has distributed more than 93,000 emergency cell phones to participating agencies nationwide.

Cell Phones are programmed to only connect to 911 emergency services and work anywhere in Clallam County.
