The 9-1-1 Communications Center and the public safety agencies we serve are operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Much of the 9-1-1 activity received occurs after business hours.  When a first responder is sent to a business or other premise, it is often difficult to locate an emergency contact to come and assume responsiblity for the property.  You will find a link on this page where you can obtain a form to fill out and submit emergency contact for your business or property.  You can also use this form to notify us of a new business, an address change, or other information that would help us help you.
