CALL 911

9‑1‑1 is for police, fire or medical emergencies when immediate action is required: someone’s health, safety or property is in jeopardy or a crime is in progress. Please use 9‑1‑1 responsibly. Our call takers can’t provide information on the weather, power outages or municipal services. Don’t call 9-1-1 and ask for the non-emergency phone number.


Examples of when to call 9‑1‑1:

  • Events that involve an immediate threat to a person or property: screams, attacks, gunshots, fires, car accidents with injuries or any other medical emergency

  • A substantive, in-progress crime. This includes fights, break and enters (if there is a suspect on scene) or a report of an impaired driver

  • A serious crime that has just occurred (examples: sexual assault or robbery)

  • A suspicious circumstance that may indicate an imminent criminal act (examples: prowler, vandal)

Additional tips:

  • Know your location at all times

  • Don’t program 9‑1‑1 into any phone

  • If you call 9‑1‑1 accidentally, stay on the line and let us know

  • Lock and store your cellphone carefully to prevent accidental 9-1-1 calls

  • Do not text or tweet 9-1-1

Example watch for signs that your cat is not acting like herself. Changes in behavior, like a change in activity level, grooming or sleeping habits, are often one of the first indicators of a medical problem. For example, if your normally social cat is suddenly lethargic and withdrawn, something’s probably up. When your cat suddenly starts acting or looking different, it may be time to seek medical help.
