Stations for Reporting Emergencies Open
During the power shutoff, residents in the affected areas may have lost phone service and are unable to call 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency. In response to this need, beginning on Thursday October 10th at 9 a.m., affected residents in Sonoma County can request emergency services at a designated Emergency Reporting Station.
Emergency Reporting Stations will be at 45 fire stations throughout the County. Residents seeking emergency services may go to their nearest Emergency Reporting Station on the list provided (here).
In most instances, a landline call box outside the station will serve as the means to contact emergency services. However in the communities of Sea Ranch, Timber Cove and Knights Valley, Emergency Reporting Stations do not have an outside call box. For these stations you are required to go inside the fire station to report an incident to a staffed radio operator who will connect you to emergency services.
If your cellular service is restored en route to the Reporting Station, pull over and dial 9-1-1; doing this can get services to your emergency quicker. After you have made the call, please continue to the Reporting Station and follow up on your emergency request, in case your call was not clear to 9-1-1.
