How do I know if I should call 911 or just the regular phone number?
In an emergency, call 911 immediately from any wired or wireless phone.

An emergency is any situation that requires immediate assistance from the police department, fire department or emergency medical services. Examples include:

• A fire
• A crime, especially if it is in progress
• A car crash, especially if someone is injured
• A medical emergency, such as someone who is unconscious, gasping for air or not breathing, experiencing an allergic reaction, having chest pain, having uncontrollable bleeding, or any other symptoms that require immediate medical attention.


If you are in need of non-emergency police or fire service, in other words an emergency does not exist and you don’t need an immediate police, fire, or EMS response, please call 937-225-4357.
