How did the police get my cell phone number? (PLEASE READ DETAILS!!)

My friend and I were going for a bike ride (to a park in our neighborhood) and I had my cell phone with me. When it rings, I look at it and it says, 911 Emergency (I labeled the number previously, just in case ;]). So, Of course, I answer it and a lady asks if i am alright and i respond with I am good, fine. Just in my neighborhood with a friend. She kept asking if i were alright.

But all i want to know is how they got my phone number.. and why did they think I wasn't ok?

You may have accidentally pressed the 911 key (however your phone works..idk). Even if it was not a completed call, it would have gone through to the 911 operator. That is why you got that call from them....they respond to any number that shows. Keep in mind that a lot of emergency calls are done on the fly, so to speak...accidnet, illness, someone has a gun in your face, so you may not be able to actually complete the call, thus the policy to call any number that comes up.

It appears to me that somehow, 911 was called from your cell phone, or at least, 911 received a call and somehow your cell number showed up to them. 911 will always call a person back to make sure they are okay. They have an instant connection and are able to see all incoming calls, regardless of what number you are calling from, blocked or private. Anytime a person calls 911 and hangs up, 911 will call you back, immediately. If you didn't call 911 and your cell phone doesn't show an outgoing call to 911, then somehow, 911 received your number wrong during the connection. And that is very odd and I would hope rare. Because if someone did call and needed help and 911 thought it came from your phone, that wouldn't be helping them much.
