A Message from the Director
Recently there was an article in the press about a 911 service scam. A person called the victim and stated that 911 was going to cut off service unless he paid them. We would like to assure you that 911 does NOT call you and ask you for any bank or credit card related information. We don't call and tell you that we are going to cut off service nor do we collect any funds over the phone. Everyone has access to Emergency help by dialing 9-1-1. If you get a call like this, please don't give any personal information over the phone and report it.
