When should I call 9-1-1 vs. non-emergency number?

9-1-1 should only be used when there is a life-threatening emergency. This could be medical, fire or police. If there is any danger to someone's life or situation where the person causing the problem is still around, call 9-1-1. It is best in all medical situations to use 9-1-1.

Use 256-761-1556 when your car has been broken into, an accident without injuries, animal complaints, found property or for general questions.
