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:
1. Calling “911” from your home phone (land line) will virtually guarantee you reaching the Lakeview Police Dispatch located in City Hall. Average response time using this method is 3 minutes.
2. Calling “911” using a Cell Phone, inside Taylor Lake Village, may or may not connect you to the LVP Dispatch, which will add minutes when it is most critical to minimize the response time. Immediately, ask to be connected to Lakeview Police Dispatch.
3. While “911” is easy to remember and every child/adult knows to call “911”, there is another choice for Cell Phone users. Add the direct number for Lakeview Police Dispatch to your cell phone memory; it is 281-326-5900. On my phone it is labeled LVP Dispatch.
4. Always follow “911” rules: Give your location…..Stay on the Line….Answer all the questions.
