Emergency and Non-Emergency Numbers

If you need EMERGENCY police, fire, or medical aid: Call 911

24-hour NON-EMERGENCY: 253-287-4455 or 800-562-9800

Text-to-911 is NOT a method of convenience.  The service is intended to benefit people who may not be able to speak or hear in an emergency.  A voice call is still the preferred and most efficient method of contacting 911.  Simply stated, call if you can, text if you can't.
