Nationwide Alert: Know Your Local Backup Emergency Number


Share post:

Noblesville, IN – Amid recent 911 outages affecting various regions across the United States, authorities are emphasizing the importance of knowing local backup emergency contact numbers. 

Drawing from Indiana’s proactive measures, where Hamilton County has publicized the alternative number 317-773-1282, residents nationwide are urged to obtain and save their respective local non-emergency numbers. This step ensures that in the event of a 911 service disruption, individuals can still reach help. 

Indiana, recognized for its forward-thinking approach as the first state to adopt text-to-911 services, serves as a model in emergency preparedness. Residents can typically find their local non-emergency numbers on their city or county’s official website or by contacting local law enforcement agencies directly.
