WHEN TO DIAL 911:
Anytime you have an emergency requiring Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters or Paramedics to respond.
When you dial 911, the telecommunicator who answers the phone will ask you a series of questions including the location of the emergency, the telephone number you are calling from and the type of emergency. There will then be a series of questions that are specific to the type of emergency you are experiencing. It is very important that you answer these questions so that help can be sent for a successful resolution to your emergency.
