When the disaster sirens are activated, should I call the police department for information on weather alerts?

No. Listen to your radio or television weather reports for current information. The Police Department obtains our weather information from these sources. This type of call ties up our phone lines for emergency requests due to the storm that can cause delays in responses by the Police and Fire/EMS.

DO NOT call the 9-1-1 phone number for storm information or to report a non-emergency incident. Remember, during a severe storm dispatchers are very busy with emergency phone calls for police, fire, and medic services. Have a plan already in place regarding where to go and how to take shelter in a tornado. If you need to report a non-emergency incident to the police department, call 937-748-0611.
