Public Safety


If you need help or want to report an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately. Do not use RPIN's Web site.

If you are using VOIP (voice over Internet protocol) phone service, 9-1-1 may not be able to trace your location. Instead, call from a neighbor's phone with traditional phone or cellular service so that help can be dispatched to you right away.

Many RPIN fire departments and police and sheriff's offices teach fire and crime prevention to audiences of all ages. They also teach what to do if a crime, fire, or other safety threat happens to you or someone you know. Consult their Web sites for public- safety news and education programs in your community.

Remember. The best way to stay safe when a major hazard strikes a community is to be prepared.
