When to Call 9-1-1
9-1-1 is for police, fire, or medical emergencies when immediate action is required: someone’s health, safety or property is in jeopardy, or a crime is in progress. Please use 9-1-1 responsibly. Our call takers cannot provide information on the weather, power outages or municipal services.
Do not call 9-1-1 and ask for the non-emergency phone number. You can dial directory assistance (4-1-1) to request a number. Our 9-1-1 call takers and dispatchers are highly trained, dedicated professionals who will get you the help you need. Please remember these tips whenever you call 9-1-1.
Examples of when to call 9-1-1:
• Events that involve an immediate threat to a person or property: screams, attacks, gunshots, fires, car accidents with injuries or any other medical emergency.
• An in-progress crime. This includes fights, break and enters (if there is a suspect on the scene), or an impaired driver report.
• A serious crime that has just occurred (examples: sexual assault or robbery)
• A suspicious circumstance that may indicate an imminent criminal act (examples: prowler, vandal)
The Chatham-Kent Police Service would like to remind everyone to stay on the line if you accidentally dial 911. Should you hang up, the call taker will assume it is an emergency and dispatch police. 911 Hang-up calls consume considerable resources; therefore, police ask all cell phone users to “lock it before your pocket.” If you require police assistance for non-emergency services, please call 519-352-1234. If you have a question and would like to speak to an officer, please call 519-436-6600 extension #222.
