When To Call 911

Submitted By: Ken B. Morrison, S/Sgt.

The RCMP in Blackfalds often get asked "When do we call 911?" The answer is for the most part quite simple. 911 is for police, fire, or medical emergencies when immediate action is required: someone’s health, safety or property is in imminent jeopardy or a crime is in progress. 911 should be called for: Any life-threatening emergency, any crime in progress and for impaired drivers.

The Blackfalds RCMP Complaint Line where you require police assistance is 403.885.3333. This number should be used for crimes that have occurred in the past, noise complaints and minor incidents.

For general enquiries during the day, please call 403.885.3300.

Accidentally calling 911:
Please stay on the line and advise the operator it was an accident. If a 911 hangup is received the RCMP will follow-up by finding out who the number is registered to and calling and sending police officers to your location to ensure the you are okay. This process takes up a lot of time, so if you accidentally call 911, stay on the line, or answer the phone when they call back, you will not get in trouble.

Don't program 911 into your speed dial. It only takes a second to dial it and when it's pre-programmed, it's easy to dial accidentally.

The RCMP strive to respond to your calls as quickly as possible, calls will be dealt with according to priority.

Together as a community we can make a difference and ensure the safety of all.
