When to call 9-1-1

9-1-1 is the telephone number you dial when you need Police, Fire, or Medical service. 

Examples of When to Call 9-1-1:
    Heart attack or stroke
    House fire
    Domestic violence
    Burglary or theft in progress
    Car accidents
    Suspicious activities
    Anything else that seems like a risk to a person or property where immediate help is needed!  

Don't call 9-1-1:
    For information
    For directory assistance

    Because you're bored and want to talk to someone

Never call 9-1-1 as a PRANK!
You must never call 9-1-1 as a joke, or call 9-1-1 and hang up! If 9-1-1 lines or call takers are busy with prank calls, someone with a real emergency may not be able to get the help they need. If you call 9-1-1 and hang up, or as a joke, you may find a Police Officer outside your door!
