Making “911 Emergency Calls” Work Effectively

Hopefully, no one will have to make a “911 emergency call,” but when you must use this system please be aware of the following facts:

Calling “911” from your home phone, with either a hard landline or digital phone service, will virtually guarantee you reaching the Lakeview Police Dispatch. The average response time using this method is 3 minutes. However, using your cell phone to call “911,” inside El Lago, may or may not connect you to the Lakeview Police Dispatch, which could add minutes to the emergency response time.
