Contact the Department of Public Safety first during an emergency. We have a direct line to the D.C. Office of Unified Command, which enables us to get a quicker, more efficient response from DPS, Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), or the D.C. Fire and EMS Department (DCFEMS). Our trained dispatchers have the ability to reach the correct emergency response teams quickly and provide them the necessary information.
While DPS coordinates with city officials to arrange immediate assistance; our officers will provide first aid services and guide emergency response teams to the incident, as needed.
If you bypass DPS, responding city officials will not have exact information they need. Time is precious and details are needed to provide the appropriate response to an emergency situation. DPS has resources at their disposal to provide what is needed.
Hours of Operation: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
