Handling Emergencies...

The 9-1-1 system is your first source of help in times of crisis and it can mean the difference in life and death. When you dial 9-1-1 within Trumbull County, your call is routed to our 911 Center and is immediately answered by a 911 Dispatcher who will assist you with your emergency.

If calling from a landline, the dispatcher will see on their screen:

  • The phone number you are calling from
  • The Address you are calling from
  • The closest police department, fire district and ambulance service
  • Our computerized mapping system will display your address on the map
The Dispatcher will verify your address, gather information about the call, and dispatch the appropriate response to your location. In critical or in-progress calls, the dispatcher may ask you to stay on the line with them if it is safe to do so.
If calling from a cell phone:
  • Please give your exact location or address
  • Please give us your name & cell phone number
The Dispatcher may not be able to pin point your location without verbal information. Technology has gotten better and we are becoming better able to zero in on a close location with cell phone calls. However it is not as accurate as a landline.
