911 is only to be used in emergency situations. An emergency is any situation that requires immediate assistance from the police/sheriff, the Fire Department or an ambulance. If you are ever in doubt of whether a situation is an emergency you should call 911. It’s better to be safe and let the 911 call taker determine if you need emergency assistance.
Don't call 911 for information, directory assistance, paying tickets, for pet-related issues, as a prank, or just for a chat. If you call 911 by mistake, do not hang up. Tell the call taker what happened so they know there really isn’t an emergency.
If you know it is not an emergency but still require assistance, you may reach Roscommon Central Dispatch at 275-0911; the area code is 989 if from outside the area.
