Launched on August 1, 2016 upon the order of President Rodrigo Duterte, 911 is the national emergency telephone number for the Philippines which is officially known as Emergency Network Philippines (ENP).

911 Philippines is available nationwide 24/7. For now, all calls received through the hotline will be rerouted to the existing Patrol 117 hotline while the 911 Central Command Center is not yet established.

Existing call centers are located in Laoag City (Region 1), Tuguegarao City (Region 2), Balanga City, Bataan (Region 3), Batangas City (Region 4-A), Puerto Princesa City (Region 4-B), Legazpi City (Region 5), Iloilo City (Region 6), Cebu City (Region 7), Tacloban City (Region 8), Zamboanga City (Region 9), Malaybalay City (Region 10), Davao City (Region 11), Koronadal City (Region 12), Butuan City (Region 13), Baguio City (CAR), and Quezon City in the NCR.

Dee's friends lauded President Duterte for implementing Davao's 911 on a nationwide scale.
