When to Call 9-1-1
If someone has been involved in an incident and is injured, this is another reason to call 9-1-1.
If you’re in a situation where there are several people at the scene, do not assume someone else is calling 9-1-1 — call yourself. If you are calling from a cellular device, be sure to let the call taker know your location so emergency responders can get to you faster.
Remember: If the 9-1-1 system receives multiple calls at the same time, these calls will be handled on a priority basis with the most serious emergencies being handled first. Please be patient if your call is put on hold. DO NOT HANG UP!
Tips for Calling 9-1-1
- Contact 9-1-1 if there is a threat to loss of life or property
- Know the address and city of your emergency
- Know your phone number
- Know the type of emergency
- Stay calm and answer all of the operator's questions
Text to 9-1-1
Residents anywhere in Utah County can text “911” on their cell phones and be connected with a 911 dispatcher in an emergency. Speaking directly to a 911 dispatcher is always the best and fastest way to get help in an emergency or to report a crime in progress. If you can call 911 for help, please do, but for those times when you can’t call, there is now “Text to 911”. This new feature is also a benefit to the hearing impaired and can be helpful in an emergency as opposed to a voice call to 911. This service will be especially helpful in cases when:
- The caller cannot communicate verbally due to a hearing or speech impairment
- The caller is in a situation when a crime is in progress
- The caller is facing domestic abuse
- The caller is injured and cannot speak
