If you have an emergency, you should always call 911.
911 is to be used for emergencies only. An emergency is any serious medical problem (chest pain, seizure, bleeding), any type of fire (business, car, building), any life-threatening situation (fights, person with weapons, etc.) or to report crimes in progress.
Do not call 911 to ask for directions, obtain a phone number of another Hartselle or Morgan County agency, or to contact a police officer, Sheriff’s deputy or fire fighter. These calls prevent our dispatchers from answering emergency calls.
Callers who dial 911 for anything other than an emergency tie up the lines, and risk putting someone who truly is in a life-threatening situation in further danger.
Your cooperation can save lives.
