When to Call 911

For all incidents that require an immediate response by the Police or Fire Department, you should call 911.

Although this response is qualitative in nature, the best suggestion is to call 911 when you know that someone is injured, someone may be injured or loss or damage to property may be imminent without a quick response from the Police or Fire Departments.

Call if you have a medical emergency or you witness a person or property in immediate danger. Some people don't want to be a bother or are unsure about whether they should call 911 or not. Medical emergencies include, but are not limited to:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Chest pain
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Major fall
