9-1-1 Communications & Dispatch

Important Telephone Numbers

Important Notices

  • New! Check your automated emergency features on your smart devices. The Colorado Public Utilities Commission (PUC) is urging consumers to learn how automated emergency features work on their smartphones and wearable devices. 
    • Both Apple iOS and Android smartphones have gained the ability to automatically dial 9-1-1 in certain circumstances, and this ability extends to some wearable devices, such as the Apple Watch.
    • While potentially life-saving, the features could cause many unnecessary 9-1-1 calls to 9-1-1 centers throughout Colorado. The increase in unnecessary 9-1-1 calls can result in delays for actual emergencies.
