Request a 911-Emergency Cell Phone

If you are an Ottawa County senior or person-in-need, the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office can assist you in obtaining a cell phone capable of making emergency 911 calls from your home, car, or anywhere you have an adequate cell phone signal. The Sheriff’s Office has a limited supply of these phones, which will be provided on a most-in-need basis. Simply complete the form below and the Sheriff’s Office will evaluate your request. If you are selected to receive a 911 cell phone, you will be contacted when a phone becomes available (typically in 30 - 60 days). Email address is not required.
