When should I call 911?
“Anytime you need the police, fire or ambulance to respond immediately, call “911”.
If you are unsure of whether your situation is an emergency, call “911”. The “911” call-taker can determine if
you need emergency assistance and can route you to the correct location.
When you call “911” be prepared to answer the call-taker's questions,
which may include:
• The location of the emergency, including the street address
• The phone number you are calling from
• The nature of the emergency
• Details about the emergency, such as a physical description of a person who may have committed a
crime, a description of any fire that may be burning, or a description of injuries or symptoms being
experienced by a person having a medical emergency.
Prank “911” calls are illegal and will be enforced by local law enforcement agencies.
