When do I dial 911? What is an emergency?
Emergency is defined as a situation where life and/or property is in immediate danger. Please call 911 to report situations such as traffic accidents with injuries, any medical emergency, burglaries to vehicles, residences, businesses or robberies occurring now or just occurred (defined as "in-progress"), domestic violence, any situation involving a weapon, etc. If you are in doubt, call 911. If it is not an emergency, the 911 dispatcher will give you the non-emergency number to the police, fire or sheriff's department. This allows the 911 lines to stay open for emergencies.
