Perhaps the most important thing to remember about 911 is when to use it. It is not meant to be used to contact the Police Department about routine matters. 911 is to be used solely to report emergencies.
An emergency is when immediate Police, Fire Department or Paramedic assistance is absolutely necessary to protect life or property.
We have a limited number of incoming 911 lines for the entire city. One major incident (such as a large fire or major traffic accident) will cause numerous lines to ring. Those lines get tied up quickly. If we are taking your non-emergent call on the 911 emergency line, real emergency callers may be forced to wait before we can get help to them.
We recommend that you program the 10-digit non-emergency number, 719-687-9262, into your cellular phone for quick use. However, if your call in an emergency, please dial 911. The 911 system is an emergency network that has an enhanced design, making it possible for dispatchers answering the phone to receive the address and phone number of the phone making the 911 call. This information is useful when attempting to verify an emergency or the location of a caller who needs help.
