Expectations When Calling 911
If you are in an emergency and you need emergency assistance, here are a few examples of what you can expect to hear from our Emergency Communication Specialists when you call 911.
Non-Emergency Versus 911
Generally speaking, people are aware that they should call 911 in an emergency, but they are less aware of the circumstances in which they should not call 911 and instead utilize Non-Emergency Dispatch. The result is that many requests to 911 do not involve true emergencies, which overloads the 911 system with non-emergency calls. If you are not sure whether you should call 911 or Non-Emergency Dispatch, always air on the side of caution and call 9-1.1.
