Tips for contacting 911
If you’re not sure whether the situation is a true emergency, officials recommend calling 911 and letting the call-taker determine whether you need emergency help.
When you call 911, be prepared to answer the call-taker’s questions, which may include:
- The location of the emergency, including the street address
- The phone number you are calling from
- The nature of the emergency
- Details about the emergency, such as a physical description of a person who may have committed a crime or a description of injuries or symptoms being experienced by a person having a medical emergency.
Tell the operator if the emergency involves a person with mental illness so the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Police can respond to the situation. They can provide an evaluation of the situation, and if needed, de-escalate and transport individuals experiencing a crisis to the appropriate facilities. Evaluation, treatment, and referrals are provided as necessary by the receiving facilities.
