911 Emergencies

In an emergency, call 911 immediately from any wired or wireless phone. An emergency is any situation that requires immediate assistance from the police, fire department or emergency medical personnel. Examples include:

  • A fire
  • A crime
  • A car crash
  • A medical emergency


When you call 911, be prepared to:

  • Provide the exact location of the emergency.
  • Provide the phone number you are calling from.
  • Details about the emergency, such as description of people involved, event development, or medical emergency.
  • Be prepared to follow any instructions the call-taker gives you. Many 911 centers can tell you exactly what to do until help arrives.
  • Finally, do not hang up until the call-taker instructs you to do so.
  • If you dial 911 by mistake, or if a child in your home dials 911 when no emergency exists, do not hang up. Instead, simply explain to the call-taker what happened.
