LINKS TO: ITEMS OF INTEREST / RECENT ACTIVITY:
* NOTE: All
counties have 911 service. The counties and states are not interconnected.
In some cases services of Fire Departments and Rescue Squads overlap counties
and state lines. When using 911 you must clearly identify the location where
assistance is needed (State, County, Town, Subdivision, Street, House
number). If possible, a person should be directed to stand at the roadside to
flag down the volunteer unit responding.
Use of cell phones on or around the lake is
spotty and is not suggested for 911 calls. If you must, in an emergency, use a
cell phone you need to determine which 911 area you have reached and you must be
able to properly locate your position on the lake so the 911 service contacted
can contact another agency if necessary.
