What about dialing 911?

911 should be dialed when an ambulance, fire unit, or a police officer is needed at a particular location for an emergency. When you dial 911, a Stark County 911 telecommunications operator located at the Stark County Safety Building receives your call. The dispatcher determines what agency and type of emergency that you have. This information is forwarded to the North Canton Police Department if the emergency is in our jurisdiction. Your address will automatically print out on both a printer and a dispatcher’s computer monitor. The dispatcher will automatically start the appropriate response to the location. If it is safe to do so, please stay on the line so that the dispatcher can obtain additional and current information. Remember to speak clearly and slowly.
