Dial-911: the little things that you’ve missed… – Part 1

If the title of this article has caught your eye, it probably means that you are a loyal player of Dial-911. And we thank you for that ! We chose this topic in order to help you become an experienced gamer, thanks to information and options within the game that you might have missed …

The country is yours

You may have taken time to develop and expand your police station or fire brigade in the city that you carefully selected at the very beginning of your game. But did you know that you can build wherever you feel like … You don’t have to carry on building in the same place throughout your game! Indeed, you are free to build in other cities! Just go to the magnifying glass that you will find at the bottom right of your screen, and enter the name of the city you wish to work in, just as you did at the beginning. Canada is yours, so why limit yourself to a specific area?

Money: the sinews of war

The great player that you are doesnt need to be reminded about the importance of money in the game. One can carry on having fun thanks to the money he/she cashes in through his/her successful missions. Money (fictional money of course) within the game enables you to evolve all along Dial-911. However, you may have missed a piece of information … Have you ever clicked on your level gauge, that one can find on the top left of the screen? Done? In these case, you should see appear a screen called « Mission records. » You have the possibility to go back in time and take a look at the different missions you drove out agents on. The piece of information that interests us the most here concerns the amount of money that you have cashed in thanks to each mission. As a result, a player can see that a fight earned less than a murder, the homicide will have brought in less money than a shootout. What can we claim? The more your mission is complex, the more the money. And with more money, one can evolve in his/her game a lot faster. So when your missions will appear now, we advise you to pay attention to their level, and compare them if you are asked to intervene on several sectors. The aim is to choose those that will earn you the most, of course!

Sorting out one’s vehicles

To intervene on a mission, you have to select the vehicle that seems most appropriate. We remind you the importance of taking into account the distance between your car and the incident in order to reduce the duration of the intervention, and thus put all the chances to succeed on you side and cash in money faster. It is in your choice of cars that the following tip will find its use. Indeed, if you look to the right of your screen, you will see three small icons: a flame (for firefighters), a star (for the police), and an A (for ambulance). Clicking on one of them will enable you to sort out your vehicles according to their type and their final destination. As a long time player, you probably have many cars. So, clicking on the kind of vehicle that you want to drive out, saves you time, once again. As a result, you don’t have to go through your long list to find the most suitable vehicle. Not bad, eh?

Following the progress of one’s interventions

There are several ways to follow the progress of your missions. The Passive way: which consists in waiting for your device to ring and notify you about the necessity of sending out other vehicles. The Active way: which consists in keeping an eye on the progress of your missions thanks to there gauges (the more they go down, the better). However, there is another way that you may not have found out yet. We could name it the « super-active » one. Why? Because it is based on your dynamism. Indeed, you can click directly on the current mission, on the map to see how they are progressing, and drive out, if necessary, new agents.

Silent mode: Dial-911 has thought of everything!

Your addiction to Dial-911 may follow you in places where silence and discretion are essential. Therefore impossible for you to keep your device on ring mode and let the « Dringggggs » fly out. So, how to play without making any noise? Many of you must think that it is simply imposible. But we have good news for you: just because you phone is on silent mode doesnt mean that you are not notified about your missions. If you look closely, the « danger » button at the bottom left of your screen changes to red when you need to make a decision. The color turns bake to orange when the situation is under control. You see, you can play Dial-911 no matter where you are!

We will be back soon with new tips in the second part of « Dial-911: little things that you’ve missed … »

Dial-911: overview of news and tips! – Part 2

We’re back with the second part of Dial-911 : overview of news and tips! Little reminder for those of you who have not had the opportunity to read the previous article: the goal here is to keep you updated with the latest news of your favorite game and give you a few interesting tips that will allow you to evolve faster in your game. You think you already know everything about Dial-911? Maybe … But it is still worth a shot ! Take a few minutes, and sit nicely in your sofa to see what you can get out of this chapter!

Dial-911: revealing colors

Have you ever taken the time to observe your game map without clicking one of the tabs? If this is the case, you might have realized that small bubbles appear; these represent your various missions. Look again a little closer … You see … Each bubble has a specific color. Purple indicates a mission that needs your intervention, yellow means that you are managing the mission, and green indicates that the situation is under control. Thus, no need to go to the mission tab to know what’s going on! Not bad! Eh ?!

Call back button: feel free to use it!

Many players do not use the « call back » button as much as they should. Why ? Because, ordering a vehicle to turn back has a failure aftertaste. Wrong! It’s not because you cancel a mission that you have failed! Well, it’s sure not very pleasant, but we must learn from our mistakes to improve. Speaking about improving one’s playing technics, it is important to know that the « call back » button can be used for strategic purposes!  » Really ?! « . Yes ! Two scenarios:

You are on a mission: overseeing a place of worship. All is going well. You have perfectly mastered the situation. Total: 2 vehicles doing the job. The alarm goes. We need you somewhere else. Normally, this would not be a problem, but at that moment, you have no more vehicles available! A problematic situation, you will agree! You are upset knowing that this new mission would have earned more than the worship place one. Do not worry, a solution does exist! Just analyze the situation. You currently have 2 cars processing your supervisory mission. But one lot of agents is far enough! Why not send a car on the mission that would make you hit the jackpot? A vehicle is not enough? In that case, have a look at the other ongoing missions, and see if you can not call back a car to send it where it’s really needed! It’s all about organization!

« Better too many than not enough. » The saying also applies to Dial-911 players who prefer to send out more cars than necessary. It is true that this is a way to ensure the success of the mission, however, and in the same way as the previous example, you may find yourself stuck if you do not keep cars in stock! If you really want to play the safety card, send your cars on the mission a few minutes apart. If the first vehicle is not enough, you already have another coming. If conversely, the officers there are numerous enough, quickly call back the last car sent out. You will be glad to have officers in stock when the time comes!


Over time, the different missions will become familiar to you, that’s a fact. So why not take advantage of this knowledge and use it … « Yes, but how? « . Anticipating! What is the difference between a family dispute and a shootout? The difficulty of course! But you already know that! So instead of sending out a random number of vehicles, why not send them out according to the difficulty of the mission itself! A car with a relatively low level will easily settle a conflict, while the shooting is likely to be more complicated! Anticipating will save you time!

Unlocked buildings

The higher you level is, the bigger is the variety of buildings you have access to. Here’s the surprise : if you are in the police officer team, you will, over time, have the possibility to invest in buildings related to the fire brigade activity! Yes, you read correctly! In the same way that players who began their game with the fire fighters, will have, the time come, the chance to save people in police cars!

If you are at level 7, you are in this case. However, we suggest you to take enough time to choose the most appropriate buildings. Yes, you are happy to have unlocked a new facet of the game, and we understand you! However, it is important to follow a strategy! If you are, in the same way as your faithful servant, in the police team, we recommend you to invest in a hospital or in a firehouse. « These buildings are more expensive than the others! « . Yes, but there’s a reason to that! These activate new missions, and enable you to earn more money!

That’s all for today folks! See you soon with a new article!

Dial-911: overview of news and tips! – Part 1

Hello everybody ! All the team of Dial-911 is happy to be back with a brand new article. Today, we are going to give you some tips to help you optimize your game in no time. We will also introduce the novelties that have been added to the game. Let’s go!

Dial-911: tips to improve your playing technique!

Let’s talk about tips! You are very likely to have found many yourself during your game. However, it is impossible for a player to get hold of all them in a oner! This is where we intervene! Our rôle consists in helping you improve your playing techniques to maximize profits and fun!

1 – Expand the locker room

Your buildings have become important establishments ? As a result, you should have decided to recruit staff in order to cope with the missions that are getting more numerous and more complicated along time. To hire more agents, the simplest solution consists in improving one’s building, which will enable you to recruit more people. But you may not have enough money to achieve this transformation. Yes, we must admit that the expansions are not all cheap. « So, what can we do ? » Go to the « staff » tab. On your right, a small tab proposes you to expand your locker. Once the transformation made, you will be able to hire more people, and fill your cars up with agents. See, all that without having to spend thousands in the improvement of your buildings! Not bas, eh?

2 – Destroying buildings

Let’s face it: we are all a little crazy when we put our hands on a new game! In the case of Dial-911, this craziness is reflected by the construction of buildings everywhere on our map. And yes, we want to dominate the world! However, a time comes when we no longer have the necessary funds to improve or buy anything anymore. You then realize that you havn’t focused enough on what you should have, which is to say fewer areas in order to grow your activity in a few towns in an efficient manner. Do not worry, each problem has a solution. All you need to do is to destroy the concerned buildings, which will enable you to get some money back into your pocket. « I just destroyed a few of my buildings, but the missions in which they were involved are still there. Knowing that I have no more cars in that town, I wont be able to finish them! What can I do ?! « . No worries ! Once again, a tip will save the day … Have some notes in stock? Luckily you have, and you’re going to need them! To complete your missions related to the destroyed buildings and earn the money and the experience that goes with them, you will have to pay with your notes to finish the concerned missions. If you do not have enough notes, just buy a few.

3 – Earning notes …

If you have been having fun with Dial-911 for some time, you have no doubt realized that money is essential for the evolution of your game! Successful missions entitle you to coins, that enable you to move on with your game. However, the famous notes, that one can see as little keys that open all locks, are not free. However, it is important to know that the game will actually give you some every time you gain a level! Obviously buying a few notes can quickly unlock Dial-911 situations, but if you do not want to pay, just be patient!

4 – A more accurate gauge

So far, the level gauge enabled you to get a vague idea of the scope of tasks that you needed to achieve in order to get to the next level. But that was before. Because the gauge is now more accurate. Players now know the needed number of units that will allow them to gain a level. Less frustration in other words!

5 – Expading the garage

In the same way as the locker room, it is possible to expand one’s garage in order to buy a larger number of vehicles, and this, without improving one’s building. As a result, one will have a larger number of mobile agents available and will be more efficient during missions! And who says efficiency, says cash!

6 – Car tip

At the beginning, we often tend to manage our game as complications arise. But over time, we learn to anticipate! Take the example of missions that require reinforcements …. « Is there a way to know how many cars will be needed ? One is never sure of anything, however, some clues allow us to have a more or less precise idea of the answer… Your cars and your missions have a status that is represented by a number. Your goal is to match the status of your car with the one of the mission on which you are about to send it. The status of your vehicle can be higher than the one of your mission. Howerver, doing this will assure you the success of your intervention.

That’s all for today friends. The team of Dial-911 will soon be back with the second part of tips and news!

Same thing: click on it. You will then see your various missions come up. To send a squadron or help, simply click on the chosen mission and select the car that seems to be most appropriate.
