   When should I call 911?  

 

         “Anytime you need the police, fire or ambulance to respond immediately, call “911”. 

 

         Examples include:

  • A fire
  • A crime in progress
  • A car crash
  • A medical emergency, especially one that requires immediate medical attention.
  • If you are about to harm yourself.


         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.
