When to Call 911

Dial 911 in the event of any emergency or situation that requires a Police, Fire, or EMS response to your location.

Please teach your children to dial 911: especially if you are unable to dial it yourself at some point. It is a good idea to teach young children how to use 911 and the difference between an emergency (mom/dad has fallen and can’t get up, or mom/dad will not wake up) and a non-emergency (what time is it?).

Do not dial 911, for example, to find out when power may be returned during an outage or for information about local events.
