When should I call 911? When should 911 not be used?
911 is an emergency line. It is to be used for life or death emergencies, or situations that could become life or death emergencies. These reasons include, but are not limited to: reporting violence, requesting an ambulance, reporting a possible impaired driver, reporting hazardous conditions, etc.

Do not use the emergency 911 line for non-life-threatening issues such as reporting a power outage, reporting a lost or found animal, parking complaints, requests for the non-emergency number or other phone numbers, etc. If it is not a true emergency but you want to speak to the Police, call the regular number at 330-342-1800.
