When to use 9-1-1
9-1-1 should be dialed when a Police, Fire or EMS/Ambulance is needed.
A Police emergency is any situation involving a crime in progress, or an imminent threat to life, bodily injury, or major property damage or loss.  A good example of a police emergency would be a fight or assault in progress, or a home or business buglary in progress.

How to use 9-1-1
When you have an emergency:
 
  1. Dial 911
   2. Remain Calm; speak slowly and clearly
   3. When the operator answers;
           - Describe the emergency
           - Give the exact location where help is needed
           - Answer all questions asked by the operator 
   4. Do not hang up until the operator is finished
