Public Safety and Emergencies

About

Public safety is one of the most important aspects of local government. Men and women serve 24 hours a day to keep us safe, prepare us for emergencies and respond to incidents like fires or medical calls.

Contacting 9-1-1

Of course, calling or texting 9-1-1 is the first and best option if there's a life-threatening emergency.

You can also call the public safety non-emergency number at 703-691-2131, TTY 703-204-2264

Emergency management professionals typically break down their responsibilities into four phases, which form a cycle. This four-phase cycle applies to you too.
