What is an emergency? 

An emergency is any situation that requires immediate assistance from Police, Fire or EMS services.                                                                                                               

The following are examples of when to call: 

  • Is there a threat to life or property? 
  • Are you or someone else the victim of a crime? 
  • Medical emergency                                                                              
  • Fires
Be prepared for the following questions: 
  • What is your emergency? 
  • What is your address?
  • What is a call back number?
  • What is your name? 
Once the Jackson County 9-1-1 Telecommunicator gathers this information your call will be provided to responders. The Telecommunicator will have follow up questions to better aide our responders. Be advised these questions have no affect on the response times for police, fire or ems.
