An emergency situation is any situation that may be life-threatening or that requires immediate assistance from the police, fire department, or ambulance.

Some examples of emergencies include:

  • A fire
  • A crime, especially if in progress
  • A car crash, especially if someone is injured
  • A medical emergency, such as someone who is unconscious, gasping for air or not breathing, experiencing an allergic reaction, having chest pain, having uncontrollable bleeding, or any other symptoms that require immediate medical attention

You can call 911 from both wired or wireless phones 24-hours a day. Cell phone calls and calls using Voice Over IP usually can’t be traced to a specific address, so the dispatcher will likely need information about your location.
