Bay Area Local Emergency Dispatch Numbers

or ‘911’ alternatives to call from your cell phone.

Calling ‘911’ on your cellular phone anywhere in the Bay Area usually connects you to the CHP (Highway Patrol) regional dispatch center in Vallejo. Waiting times can be lengthy to reach a CHP dispatcher, who will then have to transfer your call back to a local agency’s emergency dispatch center. So, unless you are on a freeway (or have other reason to call the CHP), avoid dialing ‘911’ on your cell phone. Instead, pre-program the local seven-digit (10 digits with area code) emergency numbers for the cities where you live and work, and dial them directly in an emergency.
