Public Safety


The safety of our families is crucial to a successful community. The City of Port Angeles recognizes this need and, with the help of other area agencies, we continue to work towards making the community a better and safer place in which to live and work.

911 Procedures

Call 911 should you have an emergency, or call 360-452-4545 for general information.

You should call 911 anytime there is an actual emergency. If you are unsure, call 911 and the dispatcher will make the final determination.

Please do not call 911 to report that electricity or other utilities are off, to ask for phone numbers for other governmental services, to learn general information, or to report a highly visible event like an earthquake if you do not require immediate help. If the 911 system receives multiple calls at the same time, these calls will be handled on a priority basis with the most serious emergencies handled first. Please be patient if your call is put on hold. Do not hang up!

For further information on 911 procedures, please read over our 911 Procedures instructional document (PDF).
