What we do

We connect you to emergency services.

Respond. Engage. Educate.

Emergency call center

Our call center operators notify our police, fire and ambulance teams that you need help.

When you call us, we:

  • Listen to you
  • Ask questions
  • Coordinate a response

Every call is important, but threats to life and property are our highest priority.

Community outreach

Our staff members enjoy meeting you and telling you about what we do.

Invite us to your next:

  • Block party
  • Neighborhood meetings
