PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Dial 9-1-1 for ALL requests for fire department assistance or ambulance
even if you don't think it's a technically an "emergency."
Each and every FIRE and EMS request must be properly documented and dispatched by our 911 operators - who are ALWAYS there to answer your call.

Our non-emergency numbers are for regular station business only, not dispatching.
