When should I avoid calling 911?

If your utilities are out, such as cable, power, phone, etc. contact the company that provides you those services. 

If you have questions considering inclement weather, road conditions or school closings, listen to a local radio station, tune to local television channels or monitor apps or social media on your mobile device. 

For general information, call 478-272-7985. 

Never call 911 as a joke or prank!
