9-1-1 Services

How to Use 9-1-1
If you or someone with you needs emergency assistance:
  1. Dial 9-1-1 to access immediate emergency assistance from Police, Ambulance, or Fire Departments
  2. Departments are dispatched separately, so the first question you need to answer is: “Police, Ambulance, or Fire?”
Helpful Guidelines When Using 9-1-1 Services
  • Give the address or location and phone number you are calling from
  • Speak clearly and describe the problem (i.e. there has been a car accident, someone is injured, there has been a break in, etc.)
  • Follow instructions from dispatch or emergency personnel
  • Stay with anyone who is injured and give them comfort
  • Ask bystanders to stay out of the way and clear the way for responders
Never call 9-1-1 unnecessarily as you may be endangering the life of someone who has a true emergency.
