[ARCHIVED] Public Advisory: Please only call 911 for immediate life/safety issues

911 has received a profusion of calls due to the weather and is requesting that the public only call 911 for immediate life, health and safety emergencies. And, for calls regarding utilities, please call your utility provider unless it is an immediate life or safety emergency.

911 is currently showing about 33 down line and 13 tree-down calls that are open/active calls. If a tree is not an immediate hazard, please wait to report this. Call your utility company for power outages.

As Public Works has advised: “Use extreme caution with downed trees and do not cut trees with power lines or wires in them. It’s difficult to tell when power lines are live. Lines that don’t have power can suddenly be turned on as line crews are out working to restore power.”

Please also drive safely as it is wet and if the temperatures drop, it could become icy.
