Be Red. E. For An Emergency

The Communications Center at the CCSO receives 9-1-1 calls from all over the county and dispatches deputies, fire and EMS as needed for the emergency.

Call 9-1-1 to report a crime in-progress, report a fire or if you need an ambulance.

Red E. Fox is a program to educate children about 9-1-1.

Red E. Fox says:

* Tell your child to call 9-1-1 if they have an emergency; when you need a deputy for a crime, the fire department for a fire or an ambulance if someone is hurt.

* Tell your child to call 9-1-1 for a real emergency, never as a joke.

* Teach your child their first and last name, their parent’s names, their address and their phone number.
