It is essential to remember to NOT CALL 911 unless you are in need of police, fire or medical attention. Calling 911 during these disasters or incidents for information saturates 911 and prevents 911 employees from provided needed assistance to those residents or visitors that are in need of police, fire or medical response. Please also keep in mind that it may take a few minutes for updated information to be placed onto 1-888-TELL-MORE due to extreme saturation of the 911 calls to dispatchers during these events.
Questions or comments about 1-888-TELL-MORE should be directed to Roger Garner, Midland County Emergency Management Coordinator at (989) 832-6750.
