Local ‘911’ cellular phone numbers

A message from OPRS Environmental & Emergency Services:

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 the local agency’s emergency dispatch center.  So, unless you are on a freeway (or have another reason to call the CHP) – do NOT dial ‘911’ on your cell phone.  Instead, pre-program the local seven-digit emergency numbers for the cities where you live and work, and dial them directly in an emergency.
