If You Have An Emergency, Please Call 911

Call 911 anytime you have an EMERGENCY when police, fire or medical response is required immediately. A good rule of thumb is – when life or property is threatened or at immediate risk, or if there is a good chance that a criminal can be apprehended, call 911. If you are unsure, do not hesitate to call 911. Assistance will be dispatched to the most critical calls first.
