Important Information when Making a 911 Call
- The most important piece of information to know when calling 911 is the address where the emergency is occurring. Whether it is in a house, a business, a highway or in a residential area, it is vital that the first responders know the address of the emergency so that the situation can be dealt with as quickly as possible.
- 911 personnel are not police officers or fire department employees, each one, however, is trained to handle emergency situations efficiently. The 911 operator will ask questions that are designed to produce a safe, appropriate response in the least amount of time as possible. Please be sure that you are cooperative when speaking with an operator and provide as much relevant information as possible. The operator is trying to help you. By providing good information you will expedite the process and insure the best results for all concerned.
