Dial direct for emergency aid

Calling 911 may not be the best way to get quick help in case of an emergency.

According to lakeside area first responders, triangulating information through the national hotline can cause a 10- to 15-minute delay in getting to the scene of an accident, health crisis, natural disaster or crime.

Here are the recommended direct lines to contact the nearest local emergency services.
