What To Do

What is an emergency?

An emergency is any immediate threat to life and/or property that requires immediate response from police, fire, or other emergency personnel. Your judgment often determines whether an incident is an emergency. If you consider a situation to be an emergency, then it is an emergency and the procedures in this booklet should be followed. If in doubt, err on the side of safety!

You should call 911 in ALL emergencies.
