What other type of questions can I expect to be asked?
If you have called to report a fire, you can expect to be asked such questions as, "What is on fire?" Other examples include, "Is anyone trapped?" or "Is the fire near any other structures or vehicles?" The more information you can provide to us, without endangering yourself or others, the better we are able to serve you.

If you are reporting a crime in progress, the highest priority is to ensure your safety. Once you are safe, we will obtain critical information about the crime so the responding officers know how best to proceed. Please listen carefully to the instructions we provide and the questions we ask, so you can make a difference.
